“BAE Systems’ continued emphasis on customer service is validated by this
win,” said Dr. Ehtisham Siddiqui, vice president and general manager of
Commercial Aircraft Solutions at BAE Systems. “We will capitalize on our more
than 25 years of experience in aircraft maintenance to provide unsurpassed
support and value to JAL.”

The agreement will enable JAL to maintain its fleet of 737-800, 767, and 777
airplanes at a more predictable cost over the three-year term of the
agreement. BAE Systems will provide JAL with maintenance support at its
two-time Boeing Gold Performance Excellence Award-winning Singapore Service
Center, and from its Commercial Aircraft Solutions facility in Fort Wayne,
Indiana.

BAE Systems has a proven record of supplying high-integrity flight and engine
controls and a broad range of cockpit and cabin electronics for the
maintenance, repair, and overhaul market. The company’s support business
offers valuable services that decrease costs for its global customers,
including many Asian carriers.
