Icelandic airline Primera Air will receive maintenance, repair and overhaul services for its landing gears from ST Aerospace.

The five-year contract will support Primera Air’s current fleet of six Boeing 737 planes and six additional aircraft in the near future.

The firms also signed an eight-year component maintenance-by-the-hour programme that includes parts exchange, component engineering services and logistics.

The contracts replace a time-and-material component support services arrangement provided by ST Aerospace for two of Primera Air’s MD-80 aircraft.
