Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) and Hawaiian Airlines have signed an extension to their existing Prime Solutions® nacelle maintenance agreement to support the airline's fleet of 18 Boeing 717-200 aircraft powered by Rolls-Royce BR715 engines. The existing nacelle flight hour agreement provides maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, management of spare parts, rotables and dedicated Goodrich technical support.
With this new extension, Goodrich's Aerostructures business will increase its existing Prime Solutions support to include three aircraft that Hawaiian Airlines introduced into its fleet beginning in October 2011. These additional aircraft will receive the same customized full-support package as established in the original nacelle flight hour agreement signed in 2001.
"This extension demonstrates Hawaiian Airlines' confidence in the value and service levels of the existing nacelle maintenance program with Goodrich," said Paul Farsetta, vice president and general manager of aftermarket for Goodrich's Aerostructures business. "We are pleased that our proactive Prime Solutions nacelle maintenance management program continues to be an integral and valuable part of their fleet management approach and we look forward to continuing our relationship."
Charles Nardello, Hawaiian's senior vice president for operations said, "We have been pleased with Goodrich's support on our original contract and look forward to seeing the same great performance with our newly expanded narrow-body fleet."
