Saudia Technic and Airbus Helicopters have signed a memorandum of agreement for the creation of an authorised service centre in Saudi Arabia to support the civil helicopters in operation in the region.
“The signing of this agreement testifies to our dedication to continuously improve our customers’ satisfaction in the Middle East but also globally,” said Olivier Michalon, Executive Vice President of Global Business at Airbus Helicopters. “Saudia Technic is a proven maintenance provider and I look forward to exploring new opportunities to strengthen our collaboration with them in the future. We are both commited to expanding the helicopter ecosystem in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”
Capt. Fahd Cynndy, CEO of Saudia Technic, highlighted the significance of this collaboration with Airbus Helicopters. “This is not just an agreement but a milestone that aligns perfectly with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 and the national aviation strategy. Saudia Technic is not only expanding its capabilities but is also setting new benchmarks in the MRO sector.”
This strategic agreement marks a pivotal moment for Saudia Technic, reinforcing its commitment to delivering top-tier helicopter maintenance services and solidifying its leadership in the MRO landscape. Simultaneously, Airbus Helicopters expands its footprint in the Middle East, aligning with local partners for fleet modernisation, maintenance, repair, and overhaul, and supporting the region with Airbus Helicopters Arabia.
The Approved Service Centerer status by Airbus Helicopters will bring benefits, including enhanced response times, streamlined maintenance processes, and significantly reduced downtimes for operators across the region. This collaboration not only marks a significant step for Saudia Technic and Airbus Helicopters but also signifies a remarkable achievement in line with Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, showcasing the Kingdom’s growing influence and capabilities in the global aviation sector.
