Qantas Airways Ltd., the Australian flag carrier based in Sydney, has renewed its Integrated Component Care contract with Spairliners who have been providing services since the A380 entry into service in 2008.
The contract is effective from 01st of January 2016 and covers component pooling and repair solutions of all Line Replaceable Units (LRUs) for Qantas’ Airbus A380 aircraft fleet. As a result of the new agreement the contract provides an additional transportation service to and from Qantas’ Homebase in Sydney and all line stations.
The contracted services include the scope of about 1,000 part numbers (P/N) in total. Qantas offers A380 passenger transport services with 14 daily flights connecting Sydney and Melbourne to Dubai, London, Hong Kong, Los Angeles and Dallas. Since operation of Qantas’ first A380 in 2008, the component provider has served the airline for over 350,000 flight hours.
“Spairliners is our preferred component provider thanks to the successful partnership and improving high service levels through the time of the existing contract” says Mike Legrand, Procurement Engineering CAM Manager at Qantas Airways.
