Royal Brunei Airlines has appointed SIA Engineering (SIAEC) to provide maintenance and fleet management services for the six Boeing 777-200ERs it is leasing from Singapore Airlines.
Under the S$42 million ($30 million) fleet management programme contract, the Singapore Airlines (SIA) subsidiary will provide fleet technical management, spares support, component repair and overhaul, and heavy maintenance services for the aircraft.
The work will take place in both Brunei's capital Bandar Seri Begawan and Singapore, says SIA Engineering.
"Royal Brunei Airlines looks forward to working with SIAEC, which has a wide range of capabilities and vast experience with the 777 aircraft type. Their experience will ensure that Royal Brunei Airlines' passengers will benefit from the highest quality of maintenance services," says the airline's CEO Robert Yang.
SIA Engineering says that with this contract, its fleet management business covers more than 210 aircraft, with 156 aircraft operated by non-SIA airlines.
