Volvo Aero and Skyways Express have signed an agreement whereby Volvo Aero will become the Swedish airline’s exclusive supplier of engine overhaul and equipment maintenance services. The agreement is estimated to be worth at least 11 million Euros to Volvo Aero.

The agreement is based on a price per hour of flying time and gives Volvo Aero total responsibility for the customer’s fleet of aircraft powered by PW125 engines.

Within the framework of the agreement, Volvo Aero will also provide technical support functions to relieve the load on Skyways, as well as assisting with Skyways’ maintenance planning. Under the terms of the agreement, Volvo Aero Services will also supply reserve engines where necessary.

‘We are very pleased to have secured this agreement in tough competition with a number of maintenance facilities in both Europe and the US,’ said Göran Nordén, marketing and sales manager in Volvo Aero’s Engine Services business area.
