Kenya Airways renews its agreement with Joramco for its 787 aircarft

Joramco, the Amman based MRO and the engineering arm of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) has won another base maintenance contract from Kenya Airways- Kenya’s flag carrier, to perform seven heavy checks and modifications on their 787 aircraft. The checks will commence in 2020, between January and September.

Commenting on this agreement, Mr. Jeff Wilkinson, Joramco’s CEO, said: “We are very glad to further expand our partnership with Kenya Airways. During 2019, Joramco’s committed team of experts have demonstrated their ability to provide quality base maintenance services on the Kenya Airways flagship 787 fleet. Kenya Airways is a partner that Joramco is looking forward to developing a long-term partnership with.”

Commenting on this agreement, Mr. Sebastian Mikosz, Kenya Airways CEO, said: “We are delighted to further extend our co-operation with Joramco having already inducted the B787 for Out of Phase checks earlier in August of 2019 as well as C checks on two of our B737-800 aircrafts. The standards of quality achieved were as committed and we see value in continuing the partnership to provide support to our flagship fleet, the B787. The co-operation also opens opportunity to leverage Joramco skills and capabilities as Kenya Airways further develops its MRO capability with a focus on the African region MRO needs”.
