Florida-based maintenance and engineering company PEMCO World Air Services has signed a three-year agreement with U.S.-based low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines covering its fleet of more than 60 Airbus A320-family aircraft.
The new contract covers heavy checks, induction checks, exit checks, drop-in maintenance, on-call maintenance, and away maintenance, and includes options for extension in two one-year intervals.
Services will be conducted at PEMCO’s facilities in Tampa.
The two parties have a cooperation dating back to 2015, when PEMCO carried out interiors modifications on Frontier-operated A319s and A320s.
Since then, PEMCO has carried out heavy maintenance on its Airbus fleet since last year, and the extended contract will now cover new variants of the narrowbodies expected to go into service with Frontier.
“PEMCO has proven to be a first class Airbus maintenance provider and is more than capable of supporting our needs for the foreseeable future,” said Jim Mach, Frontier Airlines’ director of maintenance.
