[Avionics Today 07-05-2016] QantasLink has awarded Cobham a 10-year, $900 million (Australian $1.2 billion) contract to continue provision of airline services to QantasLink, supporting the airline’s fleet of 20 Boeing 717 aircraft to the end of 2026.
The scope of services Cobham will provide under the new agreement remains similar to the current contract, including the provision of flight crew and management of high capacity airline services across Australia, carrying more than 2 million passengers per year.
"This is a significant contract extension, providing a valuable contribution and scale to our overall commercial passenger flying operations in Australia through 2026,” said Peter Nottage, sector president of Cobham Aviation Services.
