ST Aerospace Celebrates the Success of its MBH Programmes at Singapore Airshow 2014

Singapore, 11 February 2014 – ST Aerospace, the world’s leading maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) company, celebrates the success of its trademarked Maintenance-By-the-Hour (MBH™) programmes at Singapore Airshow 2014. Currently supporting over 20 aircraft operators with fleets operating in Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East, ST Aerospace’s two latest contract wins are for the support of over 100 Airbus A320 aircraft in Asia Pacific. Scope of support includes component repair management, and/or pool access and stock consignment. This brings the combined aircraft fleet that ST Aerospace supports under MBH™ to nearly 900 aircraft globally, out of which more than 600 aircraft belong to the Airbus A320 and Boeing 737NG narrow-body families.

For the range of support services selected, the airline pays at a predictable flight per hour rate. Customers are thus able to keep operating costs low and minimise fixed asset inventory holdings in terms of spares or maintenance equipment. With a global network of distribution centres and satellite stores, customers can be ensured of a constant and timely supply of spares and maintenance support, increasing operational efficiency and reducing aircraft down time.

“At ST Aerospace, we pride ourselves on being able to provide customers with innovative custom-made solutions which can bring long term value to their operations. For our MBHTM programmes, our value propositions are simple: value for money, cost efficient,
immediate availability of spares and a simplified supply chain with a single point of
