Flight Hour Services

Airframer-developed maintenance solutions to optimise customers’ operations.

Today, all operators require cost-effective maintenance outsourcing options aimed at securing aircraft technical performance with minimal risk and investment. 

Airbus has established a dedicated organisation that delivers the Airbus Flight Hour Services (FHS) solution, which provides guaranteed services ranging from component supply and repair to full airframe maintenance.

Expertise, quality, flexibility and cost-efficiency are cornerstones of the Airbus Flight Hour Services offer, built on two different packages: 

Flight Hour Services Components 

The module guarantees the availability of all primary line replaceable unit spare parts through an exclusive on-site stocks and pool access services, as well as state-of-the-art repair services. 

Flight Hour Services Tailored Support Package 

The Tailored Support Package (TSP) is a modular and flexible solution which combines the Flight Hour Services Components module with a combination of engineering, airframe maintenance and additional services. The full package of Flight Hour Services TSP solution guarantees up to the aircraft availability, covering technical, logistics and maintenance delays.

More than 240 aircraft – consisting of A320, A330, A380 and A350 XWB jetliners – were covered by Flight Hour Services as of April 2016, showing the attractiveness of Airbus’ offer for its worldwide operators.
