Fokker Services Group and Albastar have entered into a component support program for Albastar fleet of 5 Boeing 737 NG aircraft. With this program, Albastar officially becomes the launching customer of FSG’s Boeing 737 NG nose-to-tail component maintenance and availability program.FSG will service a wide range of components of Albastar’s fleet of Boeing 737 NG. This includes IDGs, engine accessories, hydraulic actuators, valves, cockpit controls, and instruments. Engaging in this NTT agreement represents a unique opportunity for Albastar to focus on their core business, while ensuring continued competitive operation, as they delegate the responsibilities of component availability and maintenance to FSG.

FSG's track record in NTT programs dates back to 1992, when the company developed the first component maintenance and availability program to support Fokker operators. Over time, the program expanded to include the Dash-8 and CRJ series. At the same FSG has expanded its in-house repair capabilities with the ultimate goal to reach up to 70% for the Boeing B737 NG platform. As a result, expanding such expertise to a full nose-to-tail program is a natural evolution in the company’s growth roadmap, ultimately maintaining outstanding control over costs, turnaround times, and reliability.

Menzo van der Beek, CEO of FSG, commented: “With the introduction of this new program, we are fully committed to continue to drive excellence in the B737 NG aftermarket, leveraging our design, production and maintenance expertise. We take pride in having been selected by Albastar as their partner of choice for this platform.”

Jaime Bestard, COO and Executive Technical Director of Albastar, said: “having access to extensive pool stocks and nearby repair capabilities, FSG has proven to be the reliable, versatile partner we sought to ensure an efficient aircraft operation. We’re thrilled to have shaped a bespoke agreement that fits our needs as a medium-size company, and we eagerly anticipate seeing how FSG’s support contributes to our expansion plans, including doubling the size of our Boeing 737 NG fleet in the following years”.
