TROIS-RIVIERES, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this Press Release.
Air Canada and Premier Aviation Overhaul Center Inc. (Premier Aviation) have finalized a five-year exclusive contract following the letter of intent signed in 2012 for the provision of airframe heavy maintenance support on Air Canada's fleet of 45 Embraer E-190 aircraft. The scheduled heavy maintenance will be performed at Premier's maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility at the Trois-Rivieres Airport.
Premier Aviation is now also performing "B" Checks (long overhaul) compared to only "N" Checks (partial overhaul) as originally defined when the work began. To date, seventy-two visits have been successfully completed with work volumes increasing since May 2013 when Air Canada consolidated a second production line with Premier Aviation.
Ronnie Di Bartolo, Premier Aviation's President and CEO stated "On behalf of Premier Aviation, I thank Air Canada for its faith in us. Our focus on cost-effective performance is unwavering and Air Canada`s commitment to Premier Aviation represents a recognition of the hard work and dedication of our entire team. This relationship is a significant step in our growth strategy in Quebec and throughout North America and we appreciate Air Canada's confidence in our company."
Air Canada's Vice President, Maintenance and Engineering, Alan Butterfield, added, "We are very pleased with the work performed by Premier Aviation on Air Canada's Embraer fleet. In continuing to expand our partnership with Premier Aviation we are assuring Air Canada of a quality solution for our E-190 maintenance needs through Premier's proven performance and commitment".
Premier Aviation's Trois-Rivieres facility was the first of its three North American heavy maintenance and paint facilities and is its Corporate Headquarters. Premier's other operations are located in Windsor, Ontario and Rome, New York, each of which can accommodate wide-body aircraft. Premier Aviation's presence in Canada and the United States provides customers with widespread access to quality airframe heavy maintenance and aircraft painting.
