De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited is increasing its Component Solutions Program with agreements signed by Air Niugini Limited and flybe Limited. Under the agreements, De Havilland Canada will manage component maintenance, repair, and overhaul services for the airlines’ Dash 8-400 aircraft. The DCS Program will provide access to De Havilland Canada’s strategically located exchange pool.

Air Niugini, Papua New Guinea’s national airline, signed a five-year DCS agreement to support up to five Dash 8-400 aircraft. Established in April 2021, flybe Limited will operate throughout the United Kingdom and European Union. The airline’s five-year DCS agreement will support a fleet of up to 32 Dash 8-400 aircraft.

“We are delighted to welcome Air Niugini and flybe to our De Havilland Component Solutions Program, and we look forward to supporting the airlines’ operations well into the future,” said Leighton Storsley, vice-president, aftermarket and business development, De Havilland Canada. “Our highly customizable DCS program continues to be the leader in power-by-the-hour solutions for the Dash 8-400 fleet and is designed to allow operators to focus on other key business activities while we take care of their component management requirements.”
