Dunlop Aircraft Tyres has landed a three-year contract worth over £1 million with low-cost airline Bmibaby.

The agreement will see the Birmingham-based manufacturer, the world’s only specialist aircraft tyre company, exclusively supply the airline with nose wheel and main wheel tyres for its fleet of Boeing 737-300s and 737-500s.

Bmibaby, a subsidiary of British Midland, operates services from the UK to holiday and business destinations across Europe.

The company is a long-standing Dunlop Aircraft Tyres customer and under this new agreement the airline will receive new and retreaded tyres.

“Naturally we are delighted to win all contracts, but it is especially rewarding to retain important customers such as Bmibaby,” said Dunlop Aircraft Tyres’ chairman Ian Edmondson.

“We operate in a competitive marketplace and can only secure this level of business with major airlines by continually delivering excellent, reliable products and strong after-sales support.

“This contract is not only a vote of confidence in Dunlop’s ability to deliver in the future but also acknowledges our success to date.”
