Jetstar Asia has expanded its partnership with ST Engineering through the signing of new maintenance agreements.

The Singapore-based airline has penned contracts with the MRO provider including a new three-year line and base maintenance service agreement and a multi-year component repair service agreement for  support of its Airbus A320 fleet.

Under the terms of the component repair services agreement, ST Engineering will provide Jetstar Asia with repair management services through its in-house component repair and overhaul facilities and global repair network. 

Jetstar Asia operates seven A320-200 aircraft from its hub at Singapore Changi Airport.

The low-cost carrier's head of engineering, Ang Chee Keong says of the deals: “Jetstar Asia was delighted to renew the new line maintenance services agreement with ST Engineering and is confident the new component repair services agreement would further strengthen the long-standing relationship.

EVP and head of MRO at ST Engineering, Tan Eng Shu, adds: "We are committed to supporting our customers with our comprehensive range of services. We treasure our long-term partnership with Jetstar Asia, and we are happy to support them as their flying activities increase and as they continue to recover from the impact of the pandemic, through our wide-ranging MRO capabilities in this region and globally."

During the pandemic, ST Engineering continued to support Jetstar Asia to ensure the safety of the fleet. Now with the rising demand, the airline is confident of improving its operations and fleet safety at low operating costs by continuing the collaboration with ST Engineering.
