Goodrich Corporation has signed an agreement with Icelandair to provide the Goodrich Aerostructures Prime Solutions nacelle maintenance management programme for the airline's Rolls-Royce RB211-535E4 engines that power its fleet of Boeing 757 aircraft.

The agreement includes thrust reverser refurbishment and use of rotable assets.

The maintenance will be carried out at Goodrich Aerostructures' Prestwick service centre in Scotland.

Jens Bjarnsson, SVP of technical services for Icelandair, says: "Now that Icelandair is entering a period of the nacelle lifecycle that will require a more proactive approach to maintenance, it is a logical progression to reinforce our longstanding relationship with Goodrich Aerostructures' Prestwick service centre."
