Mesaba and Rockwell Collins sign 16-year service deal
Mesaba Airlines has selected Rockwell Collins to provide avionics service and support for its fleet of 41 CRJ900 and 19 CRJ200 aircraft.
Under a sixteen-year Dispatch agreement, Rockwell Collins will provide Mesaba with avionics component repairs and inventory that is pre-positioned at multiple service locations.
“This partnership with Rockwell Collins will be instrumental to us as we look to maintain our performance metrics with their spares programme,” said Bill Donohue, vice-president, technical operations for Mesaba Airlines.
The programme also gives Mesaba the ability to manage accurately its available seat-mile cost by consolidating asset inventory and component repairs in a price-per-flight hour agreement that guarantees repair turnaround times and availability of assets.
Rockwell Collins’ Dispatch programme provides total life cycle support by ensuring guaranteed service levels with reduced operational risk at a predictive cost, by providing spares ownership, component repairs, logistical support and reliability upgrades.
