Safran and ST Engineering Sign License Agreement for the MRO of the Airbus A320neo / LEAP-1A Nacelles

Safran Nacelles and the Commercial Aerospace business of ST Engineering have today signed a license agreement for the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) of Airbus A320neo’s LEAP-1A nacelles. Over 2,500 nacelles produced by Safran Nacelles are currently in service on Airbus A320neo aircraft that are powered by CFM International’s LEAP-1A engines.

With this partnership, Safran Nacelles and ST Engineering will jointly ensure the highest standards in nacelle MRO, guaranteed by the OEM, for the growing fleet of Airbus A320neo. In addition, with the support of Safran Nacelles' and ST Engineering’s global network of aerospace MRO stations, A320neo operators can be assured of finding a repair station of choice that meets their expectations of turn time, logistics costs and lead time.

ST Engineering’s sites are also equipped for complex repairs, with 24/7 access to a stock of large nacelle components including air inlets, fan cowls, thrust reversers and exhaust systems.
