Indian carrier Vistara has signed a long-term contract with Airbus to maintain its fleet of new A320s.
Under the Flight Hour Services (FHS) package, Airbus will provide full airframe maintenance and engineering services, as well as components supply and repair.
A team of Airbus staff will also perform day-to-day maintenance activities, including line maintenance, aircraft checks and spare parts management.
The contract covers the airline’s forthcoming fleet of 20 leased A320 aircraft, the first of which entered service in September and the remainder will be delivered over the next five years.
Vistara is owned by TATA and Singapore Airlines joint venture Tata Singapore Airlines and is Airbus’ first FHS client in India.
