StandardAero has signed a new contract to maintain aircraft engines for Silver Airways and some of that work will be done in the Summerside.
The exclusive contract will result in Standard Aero servicing Silver Airways fleet of new ATR-600 regional turboprop engines. The Summerside facility will provide overhaul-level support.
The deal also means Silver Airways will benefit from access to Standard Aero’s North American network of services centre and mobile repair teams.
Steve Rossum, Chief Executive Officer of Silver Airways, welcomed the deal.
“We are most pleased to enter into a long-term cooperative engine maintenance partnership with StandardAero, a global world-class repair and overhaul provider that will ensure best-in-class operational performance.”
The service agreement will provide 15 years of work for the StandardAero team, added Roger Ross, president, airlines and fleets for StandardAero.
“We are excited to be part of Silver’s success story and look forward to meeting and exceeding the airline’s expectations for on-time support.”
Silver Airways’ main route hubs are centred in Florida’s Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa. The company services regional routes mostly in the southeastern U.S. and the Caribbean.
StandardAero employs almost 6,000 people around the world, a little more than 500 of whom work out of the company’s hub in Summerside’s Slemon Park.
