Dunlop Aircraft Tyres lands five-year Icelandair Boeing 757 deal
Dunlop Aircraft Tyres has announced that it has signed up to supply tyres to the 28 aircraft that are maintained by Icelandair Technical Services. The five-year agreement covers both the supply of new tyres and retreading for a fleet of 16 aircraft operated by Icelandair on passenger and cargo routes, as well as 12 flown by airlines in the Nordics and Russia. The company says the deal underlines its high-flying position with Boeing 757-200 operators like Icelandair; Dunlop also supports other major European 757-200 operators such as DHL, First Choice Airways and Thomas Cook.
“I’m delighted that we have strengthened our market share with this significant deal,” said Dunlop Aircraft Tyres’ chairman, Ian Edmondson. “It means we now support more Boeing 757-200 aircraft in Europe than any other tyre company, which is testament to the great quality of our products and service.”
Dunlop, which last year celebrated 100 years of world class aircraft tyre manufacturing, is investing in both geographical and product expansion. It has opened a new tyre distribution and retreading facility in China and recently bought additional product testing and manufacturing equipment that will be used to enable the company to bring new radial tyres to market.
