UTC Aerospace Systems to Provide Nacelle Maintenance for Avianca Brazil A320 Fleet

UTC Aerospace Systems’ Aerostructures business has been selected by Ocean Air Linhas Aereas Avianca Brazil to provide complete nacelle maintenance for the airline’s fleet of 12 A320 family aircraft powered by CFM56-5B engines. The flight hour agreement specifies that Aerostructures will provide initial provisioning of spare parts, dedicated nacelle components to enhance Avianca Brazil’s operational reliability, as well as providing scheduled and unscheduled maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) coverage, including parts and labor. The MRO work will be performed at the UTC Aerospace Systems’ MRO facility located in Atibaia, Brazil (Goodrich do Brasil). UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

“This is our first nacelle flight hour agreement within Brazil and demonstrates the importance of this growing market,” said Marc Duvall, president of Aerostructures. “Being selected by Avianca also underscores our capability in serving South American customers’ MRO needs through our maintenance facility, which relocated from Sao Carlos to Atibaia last year.”
