Jaramco, the Amman, Jordan-based independent commercial aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility has signed a five-year agreement with low-cost Irish carrier Ryanair which will see the airline using up to six heavy maintenance bay slots at its facility in Amman.
While Ryanair uses a wide combination of both internal facilities and external suppliers to conduct its heavy maintenance, this latest agreement will guarantee that the carrier’s needs as its fleet grows to in excess of 600 aircraft will be met now and in the future.
Ryanair’s Director of Operations, Neal McMahon, said: “Our five-year growth plan will grow our fleet to over 600 aircraft and we are pleased to extend and enhance our agreement with Joramco who have been providing ad-hoc maintenance for our fleet for the past three years. This agreement will allow Ryanair to utilise up to six heavy maintenance slots, with aircraft coming in nose to tail for the next five winter seasons. Joramco is a long-established maintenance provider with state-of-the-art facilities and over 50 customers around the world. It has an excellent reputation for a quality service offering in the industry and we are pleased to be announcing this new and enhanced deal. This agreement will ensure that Ryanair has flexibility as to where it places its aircraft for the winter maintenance season.”
Established over 50 years ago, Joramco is certified by many international regulatory authorities including the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Jordanian Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission (JCARC).
