Honeywell has selected Saudia Technic, a full-service maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) organization, to be the first sole authorized Honeywell service center in the Middle East, with a global license to service the 331-500 auxiliary power units (APUs) installed on Boeing 777 aircraft, according to a press release from Saudia Airlines.
As part of the 10-year agreement, Saudia Technic will provide inspection, repair, overhaul and upgrades from the MRO Village for the 331-500 APU model. Owners and operators of these aircraft can now repair their APUs locally in the Middle East, instead of sending them to facilities outside the region.
President and CEO of Honeywell, Middle East and North Africa, Mohammed Mohaisen said: “The combination of Saudia Technic’s delivery expertise and Honeywell’s innovation will unlock tremendous value for our customers and highlight Honeywell’s continued commitment to working with key stakeholders to localize our solutions.”
For his part, CEO of Saudia Technic, Capt. Fahd Cynndy said: “Saudia Technic is honored to have earned the trust of global manufacturing giants like Honeywell, which has solidified our position as an authorized maintenance facility and a reliable partner in the aviation industry. Our relentless commitment to passion and precision drives us to the forefront of aviation innovation, where we are actively shaping Saudi Arabia’s aviation future.”
