Spirit AeroSystems announces the signing of a multi-year partnership with Taiwan EGAT (Evergeen Aviation Technologies Corporation), the MRO arm of the parent company of Eva Air. Spirit will thus provide maintenance services on its products, in particular on the GE90 and Trent 800 nacelles, on the CFM56-7B thrust reverser, and on flight control surfaces.

Spirit will provide comprehensive capability for complex and minor repairs to better support fleets locally. This will also help reduce lead time, MRO expenses and capital investments in parts inventory, while increasing aircraft uptime. Significant cost-savings are also possible as fewer repairs are outsourced to locations outside of the region.

"Asia represents extensive growth opportunities for Spirit. We're committed to making investments in the region that align with our growth strategy and help increase readiness for growing fleet demands," said Jim Lickteig, Senior Director of Aftermarket Services at Spirit AeroSystems. "Given our expertise in repairing advanced composites, we want to share our established knowledge with strategic partners and customers to establish regional expertise when these structures need repairs and modifications."

This partnership will also expand Spirit's presence in the region while expanding its capabilities to other types of fleets. For example, EGAT will also enables Spirit access to deliver broader nacelle MRO services to include CF6 powered aircraft and Airbus A320s.
