Rolls-Royce Selects Metrojet For Engine Support

 - March 27, 2012, 1:20 AM

Rolls-Royce has named Metrojet, the Hong Kong-based business jet operator and maintenance provider, as the first authorized service center for its BR710 series engine in Asia. The engine powers Gulfstream V/500/550 and Bombardier Global Express series aircraft.

The company will provide full line maintenance support, including engine and component installation and removal for the engine. The agreement forms part of an ongoing partnership between Metrojet (Booth H326) and Rolls-Royce (Booth H402), which later this year will see the maintenance provider add service for the Tay series engine, which powers the Gulfstream IV, as well as the BR725, which is installed on Gulfstream’s new flagship ultra-long-range G650.

“The service center will enhance the level of service we provide our customers in Asia and increase customer convenience by providing maintenance, inspections and parts sales directly to our operators through Metrojet,” said Andrew Robinson, Rolls-Royce’s senior vice president for customer services.
