StandardAero marked the redelivery of its 100th PW100 engine serviced for Swiftair during an event held recently at the airline’s headquarters in Madrid, Spain.

The 100th engine serviced represents a milestone for the two companies, which established their partnership in 2000. “Over the past 14 years we have been the main PW100 service provider for Swiftair, and we have seen it grow to become one of the largest ATR operators in Europe,” said Laurens Leijten, StandardAero Swiftair program manager.

Franco-Italian turboprop manufacturer ATR logged record revenues of $1.4 billion and delivered 54 airplanes last year, the company announced during its annual press conference in Paris last month. The performance marked the second straight year the company delivered more than 50 airplanes. ATR registered firm orders for 40 new aircraft and options on another 17 last year, compared with 42 and 14, respectively, in 2008.
