Cathay Pacific has renewed its service contract with Safran Nacelles covering the full support of the thrust reversers for their 51 Airbus A330ceo. In addition, Safran Nacelles has also been selected by Cathay Pacific and its wholly owned subsidiary HK Express for the support of the nacelles of their 32 Airbus A321neo equipped with CFM International* LEAP-1A engines. Both contracts have been signed for 5 years.
