WOW air selects Safran NacelleLife™ support services for engine nacelles on Airbus A320neo family jetliners

Safran Nacelles today signed a contract with WOW air to provide repair and maintenance support for engine nacelles on the Icelandic airline's growing fleet of Airbus A320neo-series jetliners.

The five-year agreement covers repair services and spares pool access for WOW air fleet of Airbus A320neo family jetliners, which are powered by CFM* LEAP-1A engines. 

These capabilities are part of the unscheduled maintenance phase in the new NacelleLife™ support offering, which provides complete coverage during the operating life of Safran Nacelles' jet engine nacelle systems. NacelleLife™ ensures responsive, cost effective and high-quality services that keep airliners in operational condition while minimizing repair costs.

"We're glad to welcome WOW air to the family of customers that benefit from the NacelleLife™ offering" said Olivier Savin, Safran Nacelles' Vice President of Customer Support & Services. "This young and dynamic airline can count on our expertise as the A320neo nacelles' original equipment manufacturer, along with our extensive maintenance, repair and overhaul resources – backed by a global network."

WOW air currently operates one A320neo and an A321neo, with the fleet of Airbus neo (New Engine Option) jetliners covered by Safran Nacelles' support services.

"As our low-fare, long-haul airline continues to grow rapidly, WOW air is counting on the high availability of its fleet – and we are looking forward to the support Safran Nacelles will provide for our A320neo family jetliners," explained Mar Thorarinsson, Technical Director at WOW air.

NacelleLife™ offering -– launched at the MRO Americas 2018 exhibition in Orlando, Florida – delivers nacelle services that are tailorable to the requirements of airlines and aviation lessors, involving any or all steps from preparations for a jetliner's service entry through its retirement from operation. NacelleLife™ coverage begins with initial provisioning assistance and hands-on maintenance coaching for an aircraft's pre-entry phase. This is followed by on-site presence and technical documentation at entry-into-service; fleet management for operational continuity, along with scheduled and unscheduled maintenance while in revenue service. Transition support for the phase-out is the final step.

During this week's MRO Americas conference and exhibition, Safran Nacelles is present on the Safran group exhibit stand, booth #1257, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
