Direct Maintenance starts providing B787 line maintenance support
Direct Maintenance, an independent wide body dedicated line maintenance provider from The Netherlands, has started providing line maintenance support to the B787. The Dreamliner is the most sophisticated Boeing aircraft ever produced and the first commercial wide body jet with its primary structure made predominantly out of composite materials. The first support event took place during the inaugural B787 flight of long standing customer Thomson Airways operating into Mombasa, Kenya (MBA) on December 3rd, 2013. By default Direct Maintenance has now become the first line maintenance provider to support the B787 in Kenya.
