Albert Pérez, Avianca’s Vice President of Maintenance noted: "We know that punctuality is one of the most relevant attributes for our customers, and our priority at Avianca is to deliver on-time departures. In that sense, this agreement not only ensures the availability of our assets, but also enhances our ability to react through Safran Nacelles’ strategic stocking locations. This agreement will also help us to keep our aircraft in flight, where they need to be and without disruptions, while at the same time being more efficient in terms of maintenance.”
