Airbus and Malaysia Airlines have signed an extension of their Flight Hour Services Components (FHS-C) contract for the carrier's A330 and A350 fleets, as an outcome from Malaysia Airlines recently completed restructuring exercise. The agreement was signed in Kuala Lumpur by Malaysia Airlines Chief Operations Officer Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi and Airbus President Asia-Pacific Anand Stanley.
The multi-year extension covers technical support by Airbus for the airline’s existing widebody fleet of A350s, A330s, as well as A330-200Fs operated by MASKargo. FHS-C provides component services including spare pool access, on-site-stock at the main base as well as components engineering and repairs. Through FHS-C, Airbus guarantees parts availability and secure aircraft technical performance thanks to high quality standards and component engineering.
“We are pleased to extend our partnership with Airbus and trust the brand to provide the vital technical support for our widebody fleet. As we move forward as an airline and share our Malaysian Hospitality worldwide, the Airbus aircraft we fly will become a symbol of reliability and consistency,” said Malaysia Airlines Chief Operations Officer Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi.
“We are pleased to continue our close relationship with Malaysia Airlines with the extension of this FHS agreement. Especially in these challenging times, Airbus strives to provide the highest quality, value-adding and tailor-made solutions to our airline partners to support them and enhance the daily operations of their fleet,” added Anand Stanley, President Airbus Asia-Pacific.
