Metrojet becomes first BR710 Asian authorised service centre
Metrojet announced at ABACE that it is the first Rolls-Royce authorised service centre for the BR710 engines in Asia. Metrojet is the first fully authorised service centre to provide full line maintenance support such as engine and component installation and removal for Rolls-Royce BR710 powered business jets, including Gulfstream GV series and Bombardier Global Express series.
“It is a great honor to be the first Rolls-Royce authorised service centre for BR710 series engines in Asia. This collaboration will further enhance our leadership position in aircraft maintenance, and Metrojet will continue to provide dedicated and high quality service to our fleet in the Asia Pacific region,” said Björn Näf, chief executive of Metrojet.
Andrew M. Robinson, senior vice president – customer services, Rolls-Royce said: “We are delighted Metrojet has joined the growing Rolls-Royce corporate aircraft authorised service centre network for the BR710 series engine. We look forward to further strengthening our long standing partnership with Metrojet and expanding customer services in Asia.”
“The service centre will enhance the level of service we provide our customers in Asia and increase customer convenience by providing maintenance, inspections and parts sales directly to our operators through Metrojet,” added Robinson.
This agreement forms part of an on-going collaboration between both companies. Later this year, the line maintenance support will be extended to cover Rolls-Royce Tay series engines that powers the Gulfstream GIV, and the BR725 engine that powers Gulfstream’s latest G650 aircraft. “We look forward to a long term partnership with Rolls-Royce,” said Näf.
