Air Canada has signed a five-year maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) agreement with Israel’s IAI Bedek Aviation Group to perform heavy maintenance on its 767 fleet. The five-year contract will be fulfilled at Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. hangars at Ben Gurion International Airport.

 

Industry sources estimate the contract to be worth tens of millions of dollars. The Bedek Aviation Group upgrades and converts passenger airliners, cargo jets, and refueling planes. It has licenses from the aviation authorities of numerous countries, including the US Federal Aviation Authority, which means that the unit meets the strictest standards in the industry.

 

The division has wide experience of the maintenance of 767s and their conversions and to date has performed conversions on 30 747-200s, 60 767-200s and 11 767-300s. Alan Butterfield, Air Canada’s VP maintenance and engineering said in a press release “We are very pleased with the work performed and the excellent working relationship that has developed with IAI’s Bedek Aviation Group,” Eli Hattem, IAI’s executive vice-president and the general manager of IAI’s Bedek Aviation Group, said that Air Canada had chosen the Bedek division because of its wide experience.
