Safran Nacelles has signed a NacelleLife™ support contract with All Nippon Airways covering the carrier’s three Airbus A380 aircraft.
This ten-year agreement will allow All Nippon Airways (ANA) to benefit from OEM-guaranteed maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) solutions based on in-service experience at Safran Nacelles repair stations. The airline will also have access to Safran Nacelles’ shared pool of spare parts and components, as well as the positioning of a spare nacelle air inlet at Honolulu. Providing the spare air inlet ensures on-site availability at ANA’s destination in the mid-Pacific Ocean.
ANA is Japan’s largest airline and the latest A380 operator, receiving its first two of three aircraft earlier this year for use on the popular route between Tokyo and Honolulu in the U.S. Hawaiian Islands.
