While signing the agreement, Ms. Sauda Rajab, CEO of Precision Air Services, said: “It is indeed an honor to renew our contract with Vector Aerospace France, who have over the last three years done a remarkable job in overhauling our engines. Vector Aerospace France has been a true partner working with us tirelessly to ensure we put back the bulk of our aircraft into operation. I take this opportunity to personally thank them for their support over the last three years and to assure them of our continued patronage of their services in the years to come.”

“We have been partnering with Precision Air Services for the past three years, and we are proud and honored to receive this new vote of confidence,” said Christian Venzal, CEO of Vector Aerospace France. “This exclusive seven-year agreement will further reinforce our commitment to Precision Air to increase its operational efficiency, thanks to the remarkable robustness and quality of our relationships. This is a great achievement.”
