Democratic Republic of Congo-based carrier Compagnie Africaine d'Aviation (CAA) and MRO provider Sabena Technics have extended their maintenance deal to cover two Fokker 100 aircraft.

The original contract covered the carrier's fleet of Airbus A320s, but CAA will be phasing in two Fokker 100s aircraft this autumn, said Sabena Technics.

The agreement covers pool access with advanced standard exchange, component repair management per flying hour, auxiliary power unit support and continuing airworthiness management, said Sabena Techics.

In addition, the carrier will receive A320 brakes support from Sabena Technics' Brussels facility.

CAA chief executive David Blattner said the airline has plans for international growth.
