Singapore Airlines has signed a ‘Flight Hour Services - Tailored Support Package’ (FHS-TSP) contract with Airbus to integrate and provide full component support, line and base airframe maintenance, as well as fleet technical management services for SIA’s five A340-500 ultra long-haul all business-class aircraft.

Under this six year agreement with Airbus, SIA will benefit from the experience and expertise offered by Airbus and its OEM and MRO partners in the areas of maintenance, engineering, reliability and supply chain management. As part of this, Airbus will procure MRO services from SIA Engineering Company (SIAEC). SIAEC is a member of the Airbus MRO Network.

This contract builds on two existing FHS delivery commitments to SIA: an A330 FHS-TSP agreement signed in July 2008, and also an FHS components support agreement signed in July 2007 for its A380 fleet.

“Our A340-500 ultra long-haul all business class fleet requires undisputed passengers’ satisfaction based on absolute fleet reliability. The exceptionally high performance today of our A330 fleet under FHS-TSP gives us confidence to apply this successful concept to our A340- 500 fleet,” said Mervyn Sirisena, Singapore Airlines’ Senior Vice President Engineering.
