Pulsar Aviation Services will provide heavy maintenance work to Mexican carrier VivaAerobus for another three years under an extended contract, the MRO provider announces on 5 March.

Pulsar says the three-year extension, which builds on an earlier two-year contract, will allow Pulsar to assist VivaAerobus, based near Monterrey, Mexico, transition from a fleet of Airbus aircraft from a fleet of Boeing models.

“The extension of our existing contract will allow Viva to minimise the transition headaches by sticking with a tried and true partner,” says David Reed, chief executive of San Bernardino, California-based Pulsar, in a media release.

During the first two years of the contract, Pulsar performed 15 heavy maintenance jobs on VivaAerobus’ fleet, Pulsar says.

VivaAerobus operates 15 737-300s and six Airbus A320s, but has orders for another 52 A320s and options for a further 40 of the aircraft, according to the Ascend Fleets database.
