Middle Eastern carrier Emirates has selected Messier-Bugatti-Dowty to carry out landing-gear maintenance on its Airbus A340-500s.

The landing-gear specialist disclosed the contract at the Dubai air show.

It covers overhaul of 40 sets of nose- and main landing-gear legs, including the A340's central fuselage assembly.

Services will start at the end of 2011 and run through 2015, said the company, which already performs similar work on Emirates' A330-200 and A340-300 fleets.
