Magnetic MRO is continuing with its push into widebody maintenance, with the company now fully authorised to provide line maintenance services for Airbus A330 family aircraft.
The Estonian company says it has further expanded its line maintenance capabilities following its Part 145 Approval being upgraded on 22 March. The approval covers all three engine types used on A330 family aircraft: Rolls-Royce, Pratt & Whitney and GE Aviation.
Risto Mäeots, Magnetic’s CEO, said it was “a long-awaited and meticulously planned first of many steps in our widebody capability plans. Our recent expansion to East Asian markets and already existing line maintenance stations in certain strategic European airports give us a strong competitive advantage supported by our total technical care partner attitude.”
It will continue to keep investing in the widebody market to provide an even more comprehensive and flexible technical support to its customers at large international airports, he added. Along with the latest addition, Magnetic MRO line and base maintenance capabilities now cover the A330 family, A320ceo/neo family, Boeing 737CL/NG, CRJ-700/-900NG, ERJ-170/-190, SAAB 340 and ATR 42/72.
