Saab receives support contract for South African Gripens

Swedish defence company Saab has received a support contract for the service, repair and maintenance of the South African Air Force´s Gripen C/D fighter aircraft.

The order value is SEK 333 million ($31 million) and will run over a three-year period.

The contract runs for three years from 2022 until 2025 and covers service, repairs and maintenance as well as minor updates of the support and training systems of the South African Air Forces Gripen system.  

South Africa has operated the Gripen C/D since 2008 and was Saab´s first export customer on Gripen. 

“I am very happy and satisfied that we have now reached an agreement for a new support contract, so that we in the very best way can support our customers with their operational needs,” says Åsa Schöllin, head of Saab´s business unit Gripen Sustainment.
