CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) has signed a nacelle services agreement with BA CityFlyer for support of nacelles and thrust reversers in the airline's fleet of Embraer 190 aircraft powered by General Electric CF34-10 engines. The five-year Prime Solutions® nacelle services agreement will be managed through Goodrich's Prestwick Service Center in Scotland, which will provide local support to the fast-growing intercity airline.
Paul Farsetta, vice president and general manager of Aftermarket Services for Goodrich's Aerostructures business, said the agreement is a vote of confidence in Goodrich services by BA CityFlyer. "This agreement is a good example of how another E190 operator has recognized the value of securing long-term nacelle services with Goodrich. Our Prestwick service center is one of nine nacelle maintenance service centers within our global network, and is conveniently located in the UK to provide cost and time savings to BA CityFlyer for their nacelle maintenance needs. Our nacelle maintenance, repair and overhaul network has seen consistent growth in providing services locally as more airlines realize the real benefits in time and cost savings, in the transportation of large nacelle components to the service provider," Farsetta said.
Prime Solutions is a comprehensive suite of maintenance services and asset/inventory management programs that can be fully customized to meet any airline's needs for nacelle maintenance.
BA CityFlyer launched its operation on March 2007 and announced a multi-million dollar investment into renewing its fleet of aircraft in December 2008. Firm orders were placed for six Embraer 170 and five Embraer 190SR aircraft, with options for three more. The first 98-seat Embraer 190SR aircraft was delivered in March 2010 and the seventh aircraft was delivered in June 2011.
