Singapore Technologies Aerospace (ST Aerospace), through its US affiliate company, VT San Antonio Aerospace (VT SAA), has secured a contract to perform interior reconfiguration cabin services on the Air Canada’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet. This follows in line with a previous contract in June 2017, when ST Aerospace agreed to provide services for heavy maintenance on the Canadian operator’s 787 fleets.
ST Aerospace has already supported Air Canada through many cabin upgrade programs, including turnkey solutions in engineering design, certification, kitting, and modification. This is not the only contract ST Aerospace has secured. It was announced that the company also signed a five-year exclusive contract for heavy maintenance support with Lufthansa Cargo. The contract is worth $30 million.
The Boeing 787 aircraft Dreamliner is the first airliner with an airframe constructed primarily of composite materials and was designed to replace the 767. VT SAA is one of the leading service providers of maintenance and modification for mainline and regional aircraft in North America. In 2017, VT SAA became the first maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facility in the Americas to perform C-checks on the 787. VT SAA has redelivered ten 787 aircraft across two heavy maintenance lines and more than 3,000 aircraft in its redelivery track record.
ST Aerospace will be showcasing its MRO capabilities and other aerospace solutions at the Singapore Airshow 2018 from February 6-11. ST Aerospace is a subsidiary of ST Engineering with vast MRO capabilities for both commercial and military aircraft through strategic partnerships, acquisitions, and investments. It is the largest independent, third-party airframe MRO provider in the world.
