Rheinland Air Service, Europe’s independently-owned regional aircraft MRO organization, is an EASA Part 145 and Part 21 approved organization. The company, which also holds approvals from Russia and Bermuda, provides certified base maintenance for the ATR 42/72 series. Additionally, RAS is authorized on the Boeing 737 series, the Airbus A320 family, Bombardier Dash 8s, Jetstream 31/41, and Fokker 50 aircraft. Building on its base maintenance expertise, RAS has launched three new ATR 42/72 line stations throughout Europe. So far this year it has opened a new line station in Albania in July, a new line station in Germany in June and a new line station in Italy in May. The new line stations complement three ATR line stations RAS currently operates for Airlinair in Stuttgart, Germany; Metz, France; and at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, France, where RAS provides additional manpower for their customers. RAS also operates a Boeing 737 line station for Ryanair at Duesseldorf-Weeze, Germany. More line stations are planned.
