Boeing to Provide Landing Gear Exchange Service to Qantas

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 1 September 2010

Boeing is to perform landing gear exchange, repair and overhaul services on Qantas Airways' 747-400ER (extended range) jetliners.

Qantas, the program launch customer for the 747-400ER and operator of six of the airplanes, is the launch customer for the 747-400ER Landing Gear Overhaul and Exchange Program.

Qantas will use the Boeing Service Center Repair Network for access to landing gear exchanges, repair and replacement around the world, greatly reducing maintenance time. The agreement takes effect in 2011.

"We appreciate that a customer such as Qantas is demonstrating their confidence in Boeing to provide them with this important service," said Dale Wilkinson, vice president, Material Services, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "By choosing Boeing's landing gear exchange program, Qantas will have immediate access to a replacement gear without having to invest in a landing gear asset themselves."

More than 500 airplanes have benefitted from the Boeing Landing Gear Overhaul and Exchange Programs for 717, Next-Generation 737, Boeing Business Jet, 757-300, 767-300, 777-200ER/-300/300ER, MD-11 and, now 747-400ER/ERF models.
