Ethiopian Airlines and Boeing Sign MoU For 787 Landing Gear
Boeing and Ethiopian Airlines have signed a memorandum of understanding that will help the airline to bring cost savings to its maintenance operations with Boeing's 787 landing gear exchange program. The deal was signed today at the Dubai Air Show.
With the landing gear exchange program, Boeing will guarantee availability of 29 landing gear shipsets wherever and whenever they are needed to support the Ethiopian Boeing 787 fleet, enabling more efficient and cost-effective maintenance operations.
The Boeing 787 landing gear exchange program greatly simplifies the contracting, scheduling and management of the landing gear overhaul process.
Through this program, air carriers can quickly exchange landing gears that need to be repaired or overhauled with a replacement set of certified landing gear from a dedicated resource pool maintained by Boeing.
By managing all parts, engineering and technical aspects of the program, Ethiopian Airlines will have the flexible exchange solution they need to repair and replace landing gear while lowering inventory costs.
Boeing will also provide access to loaner Landing Gear shipsets and parts during unexpected AOG situations.
