SIA Engineering has signed a deal with Hawaiian Airlines to expand its airframe maintenance services for the carrier’s Airbus A330-200 fleet, the Singapore-listed company said in a filing to SGX Friday.

The services will be provided at SIA Engineering’s facility in Singapore, the filing said.

SIA Engineering has existing airframe maintenance service agreements with Hawaiian Airlines for 330 aircraft, covering heavy checks and paintings, and the new deal adds 12-year checks beginning in March 2020, the filing said.

“The extension is a testament to the successful relationship between the two companies and demonstrates Hawaiian Airlines’ vote of confidence for our airframe maintenance services. With our strong technical expertise and vast maintenance experience, we are well positioned to provide quality services and engineering support for the airline’s A330 fleet,” Ng Chin Hwee, SIA Engineering’s CEO, said in the statement.

SIA Engineering said the deal isn’t expected to have a material impact on its earnings per share for the current financial year ended 31 March 2022.

Hawaiian Airlines is Hawaii’s biggest airline, offering around 130 flights within the Hawaiian Islands and services between Hawaii and 16 U.S. mainland cities as well as Tahiti, American Samoa, Japan and South Korea, the filing said.
