Direct Maintenance, a certified line maintenance service provider, part of Magnetic MRO, has announced the recent expansion of their partnership agreement with China Southern Airlines, one of Asia’s leading airlines and taking over full technical handling of the operator’s fleet line maintenance services in Nairobi, Kenya.

“This is the first time a Chinese aircraft has been fully handled by an authorized third-party line maintenance provider in Africa,” said Jacco Klerk, Managing Director at Direct Maintenance, about the true joint landmark achievement. 

Since 2015, Direct Maintenance has provided line maintenance technical support and related logistics services for the airline’s Airbus A330 aircraft on the Changsha-Nairobi route for China Southern Airlines.
