Taiwan's Mandarin Airlines has signed a three-year deal with Dunlop Aircraft Tyres' joint venture in China's Fujian province.

Under the agreement, Dunlop Taikoo (Jinjiang) Aircraft Tyres will provide bias tyres for the Taipei-based carrier's fleet of Embraer E-190 and E-195 aircraft, says Dunlop.

The facility, in Jinjiang in Fujian province, is a joint venture with Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company and Taikoo (Xiamen) Aircraft Engineering Company.

It opened last November, offering tyre retreading services and support for customers in Asia Pacific. It also distributes new tyres made at Dunlop's site in Birmingham.
