CanJet and Boeing ink gear exchange deal

CanJet Airlines of Halifax has become the first Canadian customer for a Boeing landing gear exchange program.

Boeing, based in Dallas, said in an announcement Wednesday participants in the landing gear program will receive fully overhauled and certified landing gear during scheduled maintenance cycles.

Dale Wilkinson, vice-president of the Boeing commercial airplanes material services division, said the program gives customers an alternative to a capital investment in new landing gear.

“The landing gear exchange program allows our airline customers to focus on what they do best,” Wilkinson said in a news release.

Boeing offers the service and support of the landing gear exchange program to 78 customers around the world.

CanJet’s exchanges are scheduled for 2012 and 2013.

Kent Woodside, executive vice-president of operations for CanJet, said Boeing was selected as landing gear provider after careful consideration.

“Their 100 per cent on-time delivery history showed us that they care about our success,” Woodside said in the news release.
