Agreement covers American carrier's growing fleet of over 50 A320-family aircraft.
Paris, Amstelveen, 05 August 2013 - An Aero Maintenance Group (AMG) subsidiary, AMG Flite Components LLC (Flite) has entered into a radome support and repair partnership with Spirit Airlines in support of their 50+ and growing fleet of A320-family aircraft. The multi-year partnership places spare radomes at Spirit's key maintenance locations and provides minor repair to full overhaul services for all Spirit radomes. Spirit Airlines and AMG Flite Components (Flite) teamed together partly because of Flite's abilities to perform maintenance and testing on quartz radomes economically with rapid response times, thus providing high potential savings to the Americas' premier Ultra Low Cost Carrier.
Combining efficiency and reliability
Flite was able to offer their reliable radome repair services to Spirit in a particularly affordable pricing matrix chiefly because of Flite's in-depth knowledge and experience of quartz radome repairs, and because of their ability to perform in-house Transmissivity testing of all radomes maintained. Spirit benefits from this partnership by having maintenance spares at key focus cities / maintenance bases, and by having a competitive, fixed-cost maintenance solution in place for radome maintenance.
