Aerospace component specialist Meggitt has secured two new aftermarket contracts in Asia.

The contracts comprise a two-year agreement with Air Asia valued at around $1 million, for the supply of safety restraints and fire detectors to its existing Airbus A320 fleet and a three-year contract with China-based operator Shandong Airlines for the supply of MRO services for the Boeing 737NG.

Air Asia is Malaysia’s leading low-cost airline, offering domestic and international flights to over 165 destinations spanning 25 countries with subsidiary companies across the Asia Pacific region.

The SMARTSupport contract for Shandong Airlines is the first SMARTSupport long term agreement (LTA) Meggitt has completed in China and comes just 12 months after the company announced a partnership agreement with Lufthansa Technik Shenzhen to provide MRO services to a growing Chinese customer base.

Adrian Bunn, senior vice president, general manager Asia for Meggitt’s services and support division said: “Asia Pacific is a very important region for us and we are delighted that both Air Asia and Shandong Airlines have chosen to work with us. We believe that our SMARTSupport flexible aftermarket care package will be the first of many with our Chinese customers, while we continue to establish a base in China.

Until then both contracts will be supplied from our Singapore facility which offers world-class service levels, supported by quality guaranteed original equipment (OE) product and technical support.
