Etihad Airways has signed agreements with Boeing Global Services to provide maintenance support for its Boeing 787 fleet.

These agreements are part of the strategic partnership between Etihad and Boeing that was signed in November 2019. This is in line with Etihad’s continued commitment to excellence in all aspects of operational safety, maintenance, and experience onboard.

The key to the agreements is a Component Services program for more than 300 mission-critical parts for Etihad’s 787 fleet, a landing gear replacement program including AOG (Aircraft on Ground) coverage; as well as high-quality airframe components and digital products to optimize Etihad’s maintenance activities.

Mohammad Al Bulooki, Etihad Airways Chief Operating Officer, said, “Ensuring the highest standards in the Etihad Airway’s fleet is just one way we continue to set the standard for operational excellence globally. By partnering with Boeing as the OEM of Etihad’s 787s, we ensure that the fleet receives the highest levels of maintenance support to increase reliability and efficiency. These agreements continue to demonstrate the strength of the Etihad Aviation Group’s partnership.”

Ted Colbert, president and CEO, Boeing Global Services, said, “We are delighted that Etihad, a market leader, has chosen to optimize its fleet reliability and efficiency by choosing Boeing’s Component Services Program, further strengthening our long-standing partnership. The Boeing team is ready to support Etihad’s world-class operations with our global scale, reach and OEM expertise.”
