Birmingham-based Dunlop Aircraft Tyres says it has landed a long-term contract to provide new and retreaded tyres to Czech Republic carrier, Travel Service Airlines.
The tyres will support Travel Service Airlines’ fleet of 23 Boeing 737 Next Generation aircraft, as well as four B737NGs operating for its low-cost subsidiary, SmartWings.
Dunlop, the world’s only specialist aircraft tyre manufacturer, will supply tyres for the nose and main wheels of the aircraft, which operate on routes throughout Europe and Africa on charter and scheduled services.
“We have had a strong first half to the year,” said Dunlop Aircraft Tyres’ chairman, Ian Edmondson. “Travel Service Airlines is the latest in a number of carriers that have placed new orders, not only in Europe but in Asia Pacific and the Americas as well.
“With more than 4,500 Boeing 737NGs in service, this is one of the most successful airliners of all time and it is reassuring that major operators like Travel Service Airlines recognise the low cost of ownership that our tyres provide.”
