PJSC 'UEC-Saturn' (a part of the United Engine Corporation of Rostec) will provide after-sales service of SaM146 engines for the entire fleet of SSJ100 aircraft of JSC 'Red Wings'. The corresponding agreement was signed during the International Aviation and Space Show MAKS-2021 in Zhukovsky near Moscow. This means 50 engines in operation, as well as planned for delivery in the coming years.
The provision of service maintenance for the SaM146 engine under a direct contract with the company operating the SSJ100 is a new line of business for PJSC UEC-Saturn. The contract covers a wide range of services and works on technical support and repair and it is concluded for the long term. The fleet of Red Wings Airlines consists of seven new aircraft and will increase in the coming years, which will allow PJSC UEC-Saturn to systematically build a support system by the time the airline's fleet reaches 25 aircraft.
'Interaction between PJSC UEC-Saturn and Red Wings Airlines will provide an opportunity to study in detail the needs of the operator and improve the after-sales service system as a whole,' said Viktor Polyakov
, Deputy General Director - Managing Director of PJSC UEC-Saturn.
It is worth reminding that for more than two years on the basis of PJSC UEC-Saturn in the immediate vicinity of the operators of JSC UEC, pools of replacement engines and line replaceable units have been created and are successfully operating, which allows Russian airlines to receive the necessary support much faster, bypassing the customs clearance procedures. These services are in great demand among customers.
SaM146 is an integrated propulsion system (including turbofan engine, engine nacelle with thrust reverse, attachments) specially designed for the SSJ100 regional aircraft. The engine is produced by PJSC UEC-Saturn under the terms of an equal partnership with Safran Aircraft Engines (France).
