QF A332 At ZRH Today...SR Technics Visit?

Tue Jan 10, 2006 7:23 am

Hello everyone!

Well, just in case there are people out there that might be interested (but might not have noticed), VH-EBC arrived today at ZRH as QF6007 from SIN.

I think that this is just for mx purposes with SR Technics, can anyone confirm/correct this?

Hope someone out there is able to get a few pictures  Smile

It's not the same one, but still gives you a hint of answer.

Cheers.

I believe SR Technics is in charge of performing the maintenance checks on QF's A330 fleet.

Correct, it's a planned maintenance visit; approx. duration 1 week (the previous QF 330s that visited SRT over the past 10 monthes usually left on Sunday evening, so go figure my bets for this one...)

All those 330s arrive early in the orning around 6, and go out again around 8 in the vening, you must be lucky to get a shot of those, only possibel, if early or late schedule.

This maintenance contract is quite crazy !! Such a long way !!

Why doesn't QF go to China or Singapore ?

I'm really amazed.

It`s simple, shorter groundtime (6 days) compared with example HAECO (12days) and a good quality of work

And maybe this might help too. From the QF website

Qantas and SR Technics to Examine Joint Venture for A380 Component Supply Latest News
Sydney, 16 January 2006
Qantas announced today that it had signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding with European aircraft Maintenance Repair and Overhaul organisation SR Technics* to establish a joint venture company to provide aircraft component management services for the Airbus A380.

The Executive General Manager of Qantas Engineering, Mr David Cox, said that with the A380 entering service in the next 12 months, Qantas had identified a need for the service, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region.

"As deliveries of the A380 begin from late 2006, all airlines operating the aircraft will need to prepare their support options for the aircraft which includes their component management needs," Mr Cox said.

"While airlines will determine their own maintenance needs for the aircraft, Qantas Engineering has identified an opportunity to create an independent business to provide a cost effective component inventory service for all A380 customer airlines.

"We have been in discussions with a number of industry players over the past year with a view to establishing an A380 component inventory management and supply business, and have now signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with SR Technics, an industry leader in aircraft component solutions.

"This MoU will allow Qantas and SR Technics to move beyond informal discussions to look at establishing a joint venture business, examine options for an operational base and begin talking formally to potential customers."

* SR Technics is a leading independent total solutions provider of aircraft, component, engine and technical services. With operations in Europe, the UK and Ireland, the group offers technical solutions and services to over 500 customers around the world, handling more than 750 aircraft, 300 powerplants and 78,000 components every year.

It is an amazingly long way indeed, although the A330s "only" ferry from/to SIN and go on-line there. I'm sure Qantas calculated well whether it is worth it or not...
