Aerostar wins Fastjet heavy maintenance contract

Posted 26 March 2014 · Add Comment

Romanian MRO specialist Aerostar has won a contract from Tanzanian-based low-cost carrier Fastjet to provide the heavy maintenance of two of the airline's fleet of three Airbus A319 airliners.


The first of the aircraft arrived at Aerostar’s Bacau facility in February for its annual ‘C’ check and was redelivered on March 13, with the second aircraft arriving at Bacau on March 14.
This major new contract underscores the growing market reputation that Aerostar is building across Africa for the quality, cost-effectiveness and on time delivery of its MRO services, the company said today.
Fastjet currently flies from five international airports in Tanzania providing daily air services between Dar es Salaam, Mwanza, Kilimanjaro, Mbeya and Zanzibar. International routes are flown several times weekly between Dar es Salaam and Johannesburg, South Africa and from Dar es Salaam to Lusaka, Zambia. The airline plans further route expansion within East Africa.
Announcing the new contract today, Remus Vlad, Aerostar’s civil MRO business manager said: “We have worked hard to secure this new contract from Fastjet and look forward to providing a first-class service to this important new customer.”
Across Africa, Aerostar has a long-standing customer in Royal Air Maroc which has entrusted its Boeing 737 family MRO work to the Romanian company since 2010. Starbow Airlines of Ghana is another customer that first placed its BAe 146 regional jetliners into Bacau for maintenance last year and will do so again this year. On behalf of aircraft lessor Falko, Aerostar also prepared two Avro RJ100 airliners for Air Libya in 2013.
