Monarch Aircraft Engineering to provide MRO Services at new Copenhagen facility
Monarch Aircraft Engineering has been contracted to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) at Boeing’s new facility at Copenhagen International Airport to support GoldCare customers in the region. Working as a partner of Boeing’s GoldCare programme, the aircraft maintenance provider will base a team of up to 20 skilled engineers in Copenhagen. The base maintenance, which will be carried out in a hangar leased by Boeing, will include all levels of phased checks, service bulletins and defect rectification. The new two-year contract complements the existing line maintenance MAEL carries at London Gatwick Airport. Ian Bartholomew, Managing Director of Monarch Aircraft Engineering Limited, says: “This is the latest step in our journey as a GoldCare partner for Boeing – one which we started in 2010, and have rolled out across all of our four UK maintenance bases. “Today marks an exciting new chapter as, for the first time, we extend our work to cater for the needs of GoldCare customers at an overseas base.” MAEL’s operation at the new facility received approval from the CAA this month.
