Rolls-Royce engine for Kenya's ALS

Posted 19 November 2019 · Add Comment

Rolls-Royce and ALS have signed an agreement for engine maintenance, repair and overhaul services for the Kenyan airline’s fleet of ten AE3007-powered Embraer ERJ135 and ERJ145 aircraft.

The agreement, which is for five years, will see Rolls-Royce provide the Nairobi-based specialist operator with its flagship TotalCare long-term aftercare service solution, which is designed to maximise aircraft availability.

ALS CEO, Shakeel Khan, said: “At ALS we are proud to be a creative airline and place great importance on partnering with organisations that share our vision and ambitions. Our existing relationship with Rolls-Royce has been very positive and we are delighted to extend it by selecting TotalCare for engine servicing of our ERJ135 and ERJ145 aircraft.”

TotalCare is a long-term services agreement under which Rolls-Royce takes responsibility for engine maintenance. Fleets covered by TotalCare achieve better time-on-wing, and benefit from the global Rolls-Royce CareNetwork; a large, capable and competitive engine service network that caters for the needs of engines at every point in their lifecycle.

“ALS is an exciting and diverse airline and we are thrilled to strengthen our relationship with its selection of TotalCare,” said Stewart Evans, Rolls-Royce, Vice President, Customers – Africa. “We are proud of the part we play in powering the ALS fleet and look forward to working closely with its team to deliver engine efficiency for their ERJ135 and ERJ145 aircraft, which will now be enhanced by this dedicated long-term care agreement.”

TotalCare is the flagship integrated engine service cover provided by Rolls-Royce. It is designed for predictive maintenance planning, as well as off-wing repair and overhaul activities for operators of Rolls-Royce aero engines. TotalCare transfers both time-on-wing and maintenance cost risks back to Rolls-Royce, as well as offering advanced engine health monitoring and future product enhancements.
