China Airlines and its low-cost subsidiary Tigerair Taiwan have signed long-term contracts for Collins’ FlightSense® programme. Under the contracts, Collins will provide engine accessory repair services for China Airlines’ fleet of 25 A321neo aircraft and engine accessory repair and spares support for Tigerair Taiwan’s fleet of 15 A320neo aircraft.
The fleets are powered by Pratt & Whitney’s GTF™ engines, which Collins supplies a number of engine accessories for including electronic controls, starters, pumps, valves, sensors and harnesses.
“While we’ve had smaller, piece part repair agreements with China Airlines and Tigerair in the past, this contract represents our biggest, most comprehensive MRO agreement with the airlines to date,” said Henry Brooks, president, Power & Controls for Collins Aerospace. “It’s a testament to how our relationship with China Airlines has grown over the years as a result of our commitment to provide round-the-clock quality maintenance and repair to keep their fleets on the move.”
