Jerry Siebenmark shares inside knowledge of Wichita's aviation industry.

Spirit AeroSystems has signed a multi-year supply agreement with Ethiopian Airlines for aftermarket customer support.

Spirit will provide thrust reverser, fuselage and wing component spare parts for the airline’s fleet of Boeing aircraft, which will give the airline “predictable and competitive pricing for all parts in the Spirit catalog while ensuring availability for key parts and components,” the company said.

Ethoipian Airlines is Spirit’s first contract customer in Africa.

“This is a significant milestone for our company as we continue to expand our global support footprint,” Mike Williams, vice president and general manager of Spirit Aftermarket customer support, said in a statement.
