Boeing signed two separate agreements with the Royal Netherlands Air Force and Fokker Technologies relating to Dutch Rotorcraft Maintenance.
Boeing and the RNLAF signed a strategic partnership agreement that builds on an existing support contract for Dutch AH-64 Apache and CH-47 Chinook helicopters to identify new areas of long-term cooperation.
"This agreement with Boeing supports the objective to increase the availability of Apache and Chinook fleets and reduce the costs to operate them," said Lieutenant General Alexander Schnitger, commander of the Royal Netherlands Air Force.
Boeing signs another contract with Fokker Technologies to help advance the goals outlined in the agreement with the RNLAF.
The companies are to explore collaboration on maintenance, repair and overhaul in the Netherlands for Dutch rotorcraft and other customers.
The agreement builds on Boeing and Fokker’s long-term collaboration on supply chain and sales activities in the Netherlands and around the world.
As a supplier to Boeing, Fokker provides various metal and composite structures for the Apache and Chinook, as well as the Apache’s landing gear and wiring for both military and commercial aircraft.
