Paris, 11 July 2008 - Dassault Aviation, Snecma and Thales announce that the contract with the Brazilian Ministry of Defence to maintain the Mirage 2000 aircraft operated by the Brazilian Air Force is now effective.
In close partnership with end users the three manufacturers provide repair and support services from the Annapolis airbase in Brazil where the Mirage 2000 fleet is located. These added value "door-to-door" services encompass the platform and the whole aircraft equipment maintenance.
This type of contract significantly reduces turnaround times. The Brazilian Air Force thus benefits from higher levels of service performance, leading in turn to increased availability of its Mirage 2000 fleet.
This improvement is achieved by simplifying logistics management processes and by industry taking full responsibility for the equipment and system repairs on a door-to-door basis.
The partners have successfully operated multi-year fixed-price support contracts with the French Air Force for several years. They now plan to make this proven expertise and experience available to other Air Forces.
