Engine maintenance provider Aero Norway has been selected to service CFM International CFM56-7Bs powering Scandinavian Airlines' 67 Boeing 737NGs.

SAS has signed a rolling agreement covering scheduled and unscheduled shop visits and on-wing support, says Stavanger-based Aero Norway.

Noting a "flexibility of work scope that we, as an independent organisation, can offer", chief business officer Rune Veenstra states that "light workscopes, fast slot induction and quick turnaround [times] will all deliver tangible benefits to SAS".

He adds: "It is the flexibility we can offer and our commitment to induct unscheduled removals within specific timeframes that underpin this new agreement."

On-site support will be provided by Aero Norway at Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm airports.

SAS has previously sent CFM56s to Aero Norway for maintenance.

The carrier intends for its 737NGs – a mix of -600s, -700s and -800s – to be replaced, eventually, with Airbus A320-family aircraft.
