Boeing, Spirit AeroSystems sign MRO contract for 737 MAX
Boeing and the aerostructures company Spirit AeroSystems have reached an agreement to support maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) of the global fleet of Boeing 737 MAX.
The deal particularly concerns the repair of the nacelles and flight controls and aims “to expand Boeing’s parts services options in response to customer needs”.
“With this agreement, Boeing Global Services is strategically positioned to assist all 737 MAX operators by providing lease and exchange programs to respond quickly to unforeseen events,” said Mini Desai, vice president of Commercial Spares and Managed Parts, Boeing Global Services. “Our business serves our customer base beyond the sale of aircraft, and now we can expand lease and exchange support for aerostructures with Spirit AeroSystems.”
Spirit AeroSystems is involved in the production of the Boeing 737 MAX, providing the fuselage, thrust reverser, slats, and flaps. As a supplier, it was substantially affected by the drop in the production rate of the Boeing 737 MAX in the aftermath of the two crashes and the ensuing global grounding of the aircraft. As a consequence, Spirit laid off 8,000 employees in 2020.
