Aerolitoral in Mexico chose Saab Aviocomp for component maintenance on
Saab aircraft

Saab Aviocomp has signed a three-year contract extension with
Aerolitoral regarding component maintenance for the airline company's
Saab 340 fleet. The operations with this aircraft type have expanded
very rapidly. The maintenance contract now comprises 15 aircraft but
Aerolitoral intends to expand the fleet to 25 Saab 340s within a few
years.

Aerolitoral has a very high aircraft utilization rate, corresponding to
approximately 3000 hours annually per aircraft and operates on routes in
Mexico and to southern USA.

The contract has been based on a fixed price per flying hour. In
connection with the contract extension the service concept has been
further adapted to Aerolitoral's requirements. The programme includes
the repair and overhaul of all component systems such as pneumatics,
avionics, hydraulics, undercarriages and propellers. In addition,
certain logistics services are included.

The contract with Aerolitoral is a great success for Saab Aviocomp.
Thanks to the right quality and good delivery assurance, our previously
supplied services have facilitated this contract. We are very pleased
for this confidence, says Jan Ingvar Johansson, MD of Saab Aviocomp AB.

Saab Aviocomp AB works with the maintenance and repair of components
included in medium-sized civil aircraft. The customers consist of
airline companies around the world.

Saab is one of the world's leading high-technology companies, with its
main operations focusing on defence, aviation and space. The group
covers a broad spectrum of competence and capability in systems
integration.
