Swiss International Airlines was the launching customer for the Airbus A220 (known as the Bombardier C Series in 2016) and selected SAMCO Aircraft Maintenance to perform the first heavy maintenance checks on their fleet.
"We value the trust Swiss has placed in us and we remain fully committed to strengthening our relationship with Swiss by meeting and exceeding their expectations. This was the first nose to tail program of heavy checks to be carried out on the Airbus A220 and provides a strong endorsement of the quality and skill sets of the team involved, our capabilities in the narrow body segment and of our dedicated MRO facilities at Maastricht Airport." said Constant van Schaik, CEO of SAMCO Aircraft Maintenance.
Swiss' fleet of 28 Airbus A220 aircraft have been visiting the SAMCO facilities at Maastricht Airport since mid-december 2018 and all aircraft returned to service without abnormalities.
"We consider the Airbus A220 a significant part of our strong core business and overall strategy, our choice to expand the facilities at Maastricht Airport to accommodate the aircraft type has proven to be successful and we are proud of achieving such an excellent track record on such a sophisticated aircraft." states van Schaik.
