Vietjet has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with SR Technics, one of the world’s leading providers of Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) services, worth USD 150 million. The MoU will allow SR Technics to provide MRO services such as engine maintenance, technical and training services, component requirements, and repair on Vietjet’s CFM56-5B engines installed on their Airbus A320 and A321 fleet, as well as establish a new aviation training center as a joint venture between Vietjet and SR Technics. The engines will be worked on at SR Technics’ world-class facilities at Zurich Airport in Switzerland.
Vietjet has also signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Swiss AviationSoftware (Swiss-AS), one of the world’s leading providers of aviation maintenance solutions based in Switzerland. The agreement aims to further extend Vietjet’s adoption of Swiss-AS’s maintenance and engineering solution AMOS on mobile devices to support Vietjet’s fleet by allowing Vietjet’s engineers to work with full automation and digitalization. The AMOS solution has been used by Vietjet since 2012. Swiss-AS has assisted Vietjet in fleet maintenance and optimization for more than 90 aircraft with up to 1,150,000 hours of safe operation, with on-time performance exceeding 90% and technical reliability exceeding 99.64%.
