TUI Airways has continued its relationship with Caerdav, a fully-approved and certified MRO and pilot training company based at the St. Athan – Cardiff Airport Aerospace Enterprise Zone in South Wales, UK, placing another four aircraft into the company’s modern MRO facility to undergo a range of maintenance work.
Following on from 40 aircraft that have been through Caerdav’s St. Athan base since the two companies began working together in 2019, the latest work involves two Boeing 757 and two 767 aircraft that had reached the end of their current lease.
Juergen Jerome, Outsourced Maintenance Manager at TUI Airline says: “We have developed an excellent relationship with Caerdav over the past two years – something that has been brought into even sharper focus during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The team has delivered storage and maintenance support for a number of aircraft while the industry was grounded, including an engine change and end-of-lease work. What keeps us coming back to St. Athan is Caerdav’s quality, consistency and flexibility, with a skilled team that is able to shift focus when required – nothing is too much to ask.”
This flexibility comes to the fore when preparing aircraft for the end of their operational lease with TUI, allowing for any unforeseen maintenance jobs that form part of the process, allowing for a seamless transition back to the aircraft owners.Email Post to a Friend
