Tigerair Australia has entered into a two-year heavy maintenance agreement with SIA Engineering (SIAEC) covering its 14 Airbus A320s.
The work will be undertaken at SIAEC’s facilities in Singapore, and at its Clark-based joint venture, SIA Engineering Philippines.
“We look forward to working closely with SIAEC over the next two years as we continue to strengthen the operational performance of the airline as part of our long term business strategy,” says Tigerair Australia chief executive Rob Sharp. “SIAEC has vast experience in the heavy maintenance environment and provide the highest standards with precision and efficiency.”
Flightglobal data shows that Tigerair Australia’s aircraft previously underwent heavy checks at Sepang Aircraft Engineering in Kuala Lumpur, and at ST Aerosapce in Singapore.
BAE Systems Australia provides line maintenance services to the budget carrier.
