MONTREAL—Frontier Airlines has awarded Lockheed Martin Commercial Engine Solutions (LMCES) an eight-year, exclusive contract to perform engine maintenance, repair, and overhaul on CFM56-5 engines for their Airbus A319s and A320CEOs.

Under the new agreement, services will be performed at the LMCES Montreal facility with initial delivery orders beginning in the first quarter 2016 and continuing through 2023.

“We look forward to this partnership with LMCES,” said Bill Meehan, chief operating officer, Frontier Airlines. “Their experience with CFM56-5 engines will assist in a successful future with our A320 aircraft family.”

Before selecting LMCES as their CFM56-5 MRO provider,  sent several engines to the Montreal facility for repair and the performance results were among the reasons Frontier selected LMCES.

“We are pleased to provide Frontier Airlines with industry-leading operational and economic support of their engines,” said Bill Brotherton, president of LMCES. “It’s an honor to be chosen by Frontier as their long-term partner for this important program.”
