Royal Jet awards BBJ engine MRO contract to SR Technics

VVIP charter operator Royal Jet has awarded Switzerland's SR Technics a five-year contract to maintain, repair and overhaul the CFM International CFM56-7B engines on its six Boeing Business Jets – the largest BBJ fleet in the world. Work on the first narrowbody began late last month at SR Technics facility in Zurich.

Abu Dhabi-based Royal Jet has a further two BBJs on order, which are scheduled for delivery to an undisclosed completion centre in September and December respectively. Their acquisition is part of a $700 million spending commitment by Royal Jet on new business jets, which is aiming to almost double its fleet from 11 to 20 aircraft by 2020.
