November 18, 2019: Joramco, the Amman-based MRO company and the engineering arm of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) has been awarded another base maintenance contract from Kenya Airways to perform seven heavy checks and modifications on their B787 aircraft.

Commenting on this agreement, Jeff Wilkinson, Joramco's CEO said, "We are very glad to further expand our partnership with Kenya Airways. During 2019, Joramco's team of experts have demonstrated their ability to provide quality base maintenance services on the Kenya Airways flagship 787 fleets. Kenya Airways is a partner that Joramco is looking forward to developing a long-term partnership with."

Commenting on this agreement, Sebastian Mikosz, Kenya Airways CEO noted, "We are delighted to further extend our co-operation with Joramco having already inducted the B787 for out of phase checks earlier in August 2019 as well as C checks on two of our B737-800 aircraft. The standards of quality achieved were as committed and we see value in continuing the partnership to provide support to our flagship fleet, the B787. The co-operation also opens an opportunity to leverage Joramco skills and capabilities as Kenya Airways further develops its MRO capability with a focus on the African region MRO needs."
