Boeing has won a five-year contract to continue to provide maintenance services for South Korea's F-15K aircraft.

Boeing has been sustaining the Korean Air Force's F-15K fleet since 2012, the company said in a statement released Sunday.

"This approach guarantees materials and technical support required for aircraft maintenance over many years while managing costs," Tim Buerk, director of Boeing's F-15 sustainment in the Far East region and United States, said in the statement. 

"It also provides opportunities for us to utilize local industry to help maintain and manufacture F-15K components, cutting down on cycle times," he said.
