euroAtlantic airways (EAA), owned by businessman Tomaz Metello, announces the results for the 2018 fiscal year. The company reports that its sales have reached eighty million, eight hundred and thirty-six thousand and six hundred euros (80,836,600) a figure that represents a 19% increase when compared to 2017, with net results of six million, eight hundred and sixty-three thousand euros (6,863,000).
On the occasion of the announcement of these annual results, EAA’s Chairman and President of the Board, Tomaz Metello, received its fleet’s sixth Boeing 767-300ER, acquired from Hainan Airlines, the largest Chinese private company (shareholder of TAP Portugal). EAA’s new plane with registration CS-TST joins a Boeing B777-200ER, five Boeing B767-300ER and a Boeing B737-800NG, which makes Tomaz Metello the owner of eight (8) aircraft, all with national registries. The new EAA plane flew directly from the installations of Attitech S.p., an Italian MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul), installed at Capodichino Airport in Naples, where it has carried out C Check work (heavy revision), IFE (In-flight entertainment) alteration, and an euroAtlantic customization.
The new euroAtlantic airways plane arrived in Lisbon piloted by the company’s Board Member and Chief Pilot, Capt. Mário Alvim. Before landing at the Humberto Delgado Airport, the plane made a low altitude pass over the Cascais Municipal Aerodrome in Tires, near EAA’s headquarters in Quinta da Beloura (see video attached), where it was awaited by many of the company’s four hundred (400) employees. The arrival of the new asset forced Tomaz Metello’s company to increase the number of Pilots, CNPs (Cabin Navigating Personnel) and Engineering and Maintenance personnel in its staff. The new EAA’s production unit has already secured export contracts for services, which will add more value to the euroAtlantic brand, as well as being a development factor for the aeronautics industry and the national economy, while taking on the goal of showing the Portuguese flag around the world.
