The grounding of Boeing 737 MAX brought unexpected challenges to multiple airlines worldwide. In reaction to these circumstances, Avion Express ramped up the operations to support its current and new clients. The narrow-body ACMI operator demonstrated its flexibility and readiness to support airlines affected by the suspension of Boeing 737 MAX.

As such, with over 11% of fleet grounded, Norwegian, Europe’s third largest airline, turned to Avion Express for assistance. According to the signed contracts, the ACMI operator will provide up to 4 Airbus A320 aircraft to operate for Norwegian in the span of April-June 2019.

Additionally, in March-April 2019 Avion Express provided services for Royal Air Maroc to assist the airline in overcoming the absence of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. The Moroccan carrier is a recurrent partner of Avion Express that has been reaching out for additional capacity and crew in times of need.

While supporting the abovementioned operations, during the first part of the year Avion Express kept continuously working with its other long- and short-term customers such as Thomas Cook Airlines, Condor, Sky Angkor Airlines, SunExpress, Onur Air, Tunisair, Transavia and others.
