Irish eyes are smiling on Joramco, the Jordanian MRO and the engineering arm of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) which kicked off the industry re-start with a new agreement from Europe’s largest low-cost carrier, Ryanair.
Joramco has just successfully completed its first-time base maintenance task with the airline. The agreement covered Joramco’s performance of heavy checks on the airline’s Boeing 737 NG fleet. Ryanair booked two parallel lines at the Joramco facility during the winter season, initially set from November 2019 until June 2020. While the new line of checks started on 15th July 2020 and will continue through March 2021 and consist of five 737 NG and followed by seven A320.
Jeff Wilkinson, CEO of Joramco said, “We are looking forward to starting a new and productive season after the slowdown caused by the global situation, and our teams are eager to get back to what they do best.
“As a world-class MRO, Joramco is continuously expanding and improving its capabilities, skillset and the high-quality services it provides for its customers worldwide, and as a direct result of these efforts, Joramco is attracting more prestigious airlines each year. We are honored that Ryanair has entrusted Joramco with the maintenance of some of its fleet, and we’re proud of our team who have, despite the challenges posed by the Coronavirus, dedicatedly provided first-class maintenance services that have met, and will continue to meet Ryanair’s high expectations.”
Andrew Holder, deputy director heavy maintenance at Ryanair said; ‘The team at Joramco has done a great job of meeting all of our requirements and standards whilst maintaining a portion of our fleet. All of this has been accomplished with excellent communication between the two of us. We would like to express our thanks to the Joramco team involved in our maintenance lines this year and we look forward to continuously improving our working relationship for years to come.”
