Ryanair looks to middle-east for heavy maintenance needs

Irish budget airline group Ryanair has signed a 5-year deal with Jordan based Joramco Maintenance Ltd to carry out heavy maintenance on its fleet of aircraft.

Ryanair will utilise up to six heavy maintenance bay slots at Joramco’s facility in Amman for Ryanair group aircraft including Ryanair, Malta Air, Lauda and Buzz.

As Ryanair’s fleet grows to over 600 aircraft, the airline will continue to invest in its own in-house maintenance but the 5-year deal with Joramco adds additional capacity to complement that ensuring maintenance needs are met.

Ryanair’s Director of Operations, Neal McMahon, said: “Our 5-year growth plan will grow our fleet to over 600 aircraft and we are pleased to extend and enhance our agreement with Joramco who have been providing ad-hoc maintenance for our fleet for the past 3 years. This agreement will allow Ryanair to utilise up to 6 heavy maintenance slots, with aircraft coming in nose to tail for the next 5 winter seasons. Joramco is a long-established maintenance provider with state-of-the-art facilities with over 50 customers around the world. It has an excellent reputation for a quality service offering in the industry and we are pleased to be announcing this new and enhanced deal. This agreement will ensure that Ryanair has flexibility as to where it places its aircraft for the winter maintenance season.”

Joramco has over 50 years of experience in aircraft maintenance and is one of the leading independent MROs with clients from across the globe. It offers maintenance for Airbus, Boeing, and Embraer models.

Joramco’s Chief Executive Officer, Fraser Currie added: “We are delighted that Ryanair has selected Joramco to be its trusted MRO provider as Ryanair grows its fleet to over 600 aircraft. This long-term partnership is a result of Joramco’s world-class expertise and efficient services. This growth comes after completion of another successful winter season with Ryanair. This deal is a significant factor in our strategic growth and road map which is expected to see an increase in Joramco’s footprint.”
