MAEL and Icelandair expand maintenance partnership

Posted 23 February 2018 · Add Comment

Monarch Aircraft Engineering (MAEL) has won an expanded maintenance commitment from Icelandair.

Icelandair, which has been a MAEL customer since 2003, has increased its current maintenance commitment to include base maintenance for a fifth aircraft – a Boeing 757 heavy check to take place at MAEL’s Luton facility.

The MRO provider carried out a check to Icelandair’s B757 freighter aircraft last November and currently has the second of three planned B767-300 aircraft in maintenance at MAEL in Luton. 

Andy Lowi, Business Development Manager at Monarch Aircraft Engineering, says: “We are extremely pleased that Icelandair have awarded Monarch Aircraft Engineering this additional heavy maintenance check. Icelandair is a highly valued customer and this commitment further strengthens our strong, longstanding partnership.”

Since becoming an independent MRO provider in October 2017, MAEL has announced a wide range of new agreements with airlines. In addition to Icelandair, these include Virgin Atlantic Airways, China Airlines, Wizz Air and La Compagnie.
