Goodrich signs 10-year deal with easyJet
Friday July 6th 2012 - Goodrich
Goodrich Corporation's Aircraft Wheels and Brakes has signed a 10-year contract extension with easyJet for the provisioning and MRO support of wheels and carbon brakes for their A319/A320 fleet. easyJet operates the world's largest fleet of A319/A320 aircraft with over 200 aircraft in service and 15 aircraft on order.
Goodrich's A320 carbon brakes use proprietary DURACARB carbon heat sink material. Goodrich said the DURACARB material results in a brake that achieves 2,000 cycles between shop visits, reducing both line maintenance and overhaul costs for operators.
"The decision by easyJet to extend the provisioning and support agreement for an additional 10 years demonstrates easyJet's continued confidence in our equipment performance, reliability and the level of support provided by our Hatfield, UK wheel and brake service center," said Brian Brandewie, president of Goodrich's Aircraft Wheels and Brakes.
Rob Mayo, head of technical contracts and logistics at easyJet, said: "The proven reliability of the Goodrich products allows us to maintain our highly efficient business model. The seamless MRO support provided by Goodrich's UK service center allows us to focus on other aspects of our operation."
