Singapore-based Boeing Asia Pacific Aviation Services (BAPAS) has secured a fleet material solutions deal with Myanmar National Airlines (MNA) for the carrier’s Boeing 737-800 fleet. This makes the Myanmese carrier the first foreign based client for BAPAS.
“We have expanded our international routes partly thanks to the reliability and versatility of the Next-Generation 737,” said MNA CEO Than Tun in a statement. “With BAPAS’ reliable support, I’m confident the company will help us ensure we maximize the value we receive from our 737 fleet as we continue to expand and serve our customers.”
BAPAS’ fleet material solution includes component repair and overhaul management, engine and APU movement, and warehousing services to name a few.
Based on Aviation Week Fleet Data Services, the national flag carrier has four leased Boeing 737-800s, aged between 2.6-4.3 years old.
Established in 2015, BAPAS is a joint venture between Boeing and SIA Engineering Co., providing engineering, parts and maintenance solutions for the 737, 747 and 787 families.
