328 Support Services and SkyWork Airlines have signed a two-year agreement for AOG support of the carrier’s five Dornier 328 turboprops.
The contract follows the successful completion of maintenance work undertaken on a SkyWork 328 turboprop at 328 Support Services’ Oberpfaffenhofen facility, near Munich. The work was completed by 328’s engineers inside four weeks.
“The Dornier 328 has been a consistent mainstay aircraft at SkyWork Airlines supporting our scheduled route network,” commented SkyWork Airlines CEO and chairman Martin Inäbnit. “It has helped us develop routes and grow our market share. We have enjoyed a long relationship with 328 as the Type Certificate holder.”
During the winter season, SkyWork Airlines is operating its 328s to Amsterdam, Berlin Tegel, Hamburg, Cologne/Bonn, Munich, Hamburg, Palma de Mallorca and Vienna. The airline serves London City Airport from both Bern and Basel. Since the end of March 2015 the route network has continuously expanded and now serves a total of 19 destinations. In April-May 2016, the 328 fleet will be complemented by two leased 50-seat turboprops.
Dave Jackson, CEO of 328 Support Services, remarked, “We are pleased to expand our relationship with SkyWork Airlines on a long term basis.”
