Singapore Airlines is first to sign up for new Airbus service for the A380

 

9 November 2007 Press Release

Singapore Airlines is the first customer for A380 Flight Hour Services, a new Airbus support package designed to provide airlines with enhanced maintenance and logistics support for spare parts and services for their A380s. The agreement signed with Singapore Airlines is for an initial ten year period and covers Airbus Line Replaceable Units (LRUs) spare parts and services for avionics, cabin and integrated modular avionics systems on all the A380s Singapore Airlines will operate.



Available through an Airbus single point of contact, the new A380 Flight Hour Services for LRUs will help minimise aircraft on-the-ground time during repairs and maintenance by providing airlines with even faster and simpler access to spare parts and services at predictable rates, based on stock and flight hour parameters.



Customers who choose A380 Flight Hour Services will also benefit from an on-site inventory of essential LRUs , a standard exchange pool service with guaranteed delivery lead times to replace unserviceable parts, an enhanced maintenance service and a door-to-door transportation service. LRUs requiring maintenance, such as repair or modification, will be managed by Airbus.



To provide Singapore Airlines with the new spares service for its A380 fleet, Airbus has deployed a proactive logistics network to efficiently manage the flow of material from around the world. Parts are transported 24 hours a-day between Singapore Airlines, the Airbus logistics network and all Airbus LRU manufacturers.



The Flight Hour Service is part of Air+ by Airbus, the comprehensive portfolio of support and services that help Airbus customers meet their business objectives. Based on customer feedback and evolving market requirements, Airbus continues to develop innovative and customized services, enabling Airbus customers to focus on their core business.



Airbus is an EADS company.
