Joramco wins breakthrough Ryanair MRO contract

Posted 21 October 2019 · Add Comment

Winning its first contract with Ryanair for heavy checks on aircraft in its fleet of Boeing 737s – the world’s largest – is a coup for Joramco and further evidence of its determination to transition from a regional to an international MRO provider.

 

The Amman-based MRO and engineering arm of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) announced on 17 October that it had signed a new base maintenance agreement with the Irish budget airline, initially for one year.

Ryanair has booked two parallel lines at Joramco’s facility at Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) for the coming winter season, from November until the end of March 2020.

“We are delighted to mark the beginning of our partnership with Ryanair,” said Joramco chief executive Jeff Wilkinson. “Our Joramco team has been known not only to deliver to the highest standards of safety and efficiency in the industry but to set new standards of excellence in line with the Ryanair’s expectations.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ryanair and its management for entrusting Joramco. We look forward to a long-term relationship.”

Karsten Muhlenfeld, director of Engineering at Ryanair, said: “We are pleased to announce Joramco as one of our partners for scheduled maintenance.

“With one of the youngest fleets globally, and an industry-leading safety and efficiency record, we pride ourselves in our high level of maintenance and state-of-the-art facilities. We look forward to working together with Joramco to support and maintain this level of excellence.”

The new contract fits Wilkinson’s long-term goal of developing strategic relationships with national flag-carriers and large Tier 1 fleets, of which Ryanair is the largest fleet in Europe. “It’s a good one for us; it’s a good one for anybody,” he said.

 

The drive to win European customers has been “extremely successful”, the Ryanair coup capping a good year that brought Swiss International, Air Belgium, Air Malta and Brussels Airlines on board – to name a few.

 

“We’re now starting to win checks off other MROs where previously Joramco wouldn’t have even got past first base,” said Wilkinson. “It’s not just on cost: it’s about quality, turnaround time and all the things that really matter.”
