Goodrich Corporation has entered into an agreement with Futura International Airways to provide wheels and brakes on Futura's fleet of Boeing 737NG aircraft. Futura took delivery of its first 737NG aircraft in 1999 and currently operates a total of 10 Boeing 737NG aircraft.
Goodrich's Paul Snyder, Vice President, Civil Aircraft Wheel and Brake Sales stated, "We are pleased to be able to continue supporting Futura International Airways with our products and services. Futura has been operating with Goodrich equipment since entering into service in 1990, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them as they expand their fleet. Winning this program demonstrates the confidence Futura has placed in Goodrich as a result of our customer service and product performance."
Futura International Airways S.A. started operations in February of 1990 as a joint venture between Spanish investors and Aer Lingus. Aer Lingus was the majority shareholder of Futura International Airways until 2002 when the company was restructured. Futura currently has bases in Palma, Tenerife and Malaga, providing service as an independent operator supporting European Tour companies and airlines throughout Europe and North America.
