Gulf Air, has signed a three-year extension of its MRO agreement with JorAMCo under which the Jordanian company will provide Bahrain’s national carrier with heavy maintenance checks for its current fleet of 28 aircraft – A330s, A320-ERs, A320s and A321s.
All maintenance will be performed in JorAMCo’s regional MRO facility at Queen Alia International Airport, Jordan. Announcing the agreement extension at a signing ceremony alongside the Bahrain Air Show, Gulf Air Acting chief technical officer, Jamal Hashim, said:
“JorAMCo has delivered high quality technical support to Gulf Air over the past three years. Their vast experience, quality service and regional proximity ensure that Gulf Air’s aircraft are maintained to the highest standard, with decreased turnaround time and reduced ferry charges.”
Gulf Air’s Technical Division also performs its own aircraft maintenance, up to and including A-checks and C-checks utilizing all the engineering resources available locally in Bahrain and in line with the airline’s ongoing efforts to streamline its operations for greater efficiency and cost reduction. The airline also fully manages its Continued Airworthiness Management Organization (CAMO) functions which include engineering support services, aircraft systems and propulsion engineering, technical planning, airworthiness review and maintenance of fleet technical records.
