Collins Aerospace announced today that it has entered into a long-term Maintenance Repair Overhaul (MRO) agreement with Singapore Airlines and Scoot, to support the Singapore Airlines Group fleet of 55 Boeing 787 aircraft. Through its FlightSense® program, Collins will provide the airlines with full lifecycle support for high-performance pool access, maintenance services and reliability upgrades.
Products supported under the agreement include Collins’ air management systems, electric power generator and start systems, emergency power systems, fire suppression, sensors and lighting systems. The new agreement also extends Scoot’s current FlightSense program with Collins, which was signed in 2014, to include the airline’s new 787 aircrafts that will be delivered in 2023.
“This contract marks a significant milestone for Collins, Singapore Airlines and Scoot in strengthening the close relationship we’ve built over the years,” said Henry Brooks, president, Power & Controls for Collins Aerospace. “We look forward to continuing to provide the airlines with comprehensive MRO services to keep their 787s flying and optimize fleet operations.”
Lau Hwa Peng, senior vice president, Engineering, Singapore Airlines, said “Our longstanding partnership with Collins Aerospace has provided our airlines with high quality maintenance and support services, even as we navigated the challenges brought about by the pandemic over the last two years. We look forward to an even closer relationship with Collins as the industry recovers in the coming years.”
Ng Chee Keong, chief operating officer, Scoot, said, “This signing reinforces our well-established partnership with Collins Aerospace, which has remained robust amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. During the current dynamic landscape, the ability to collaborate with our partners and adapt quickly is especially crucial.”
