In the first half year of 2018, SAMCO completed nose to tail heavy maintenance projects on the C Series at its home base in Maastricht. The work was performed in SAMCO's new hangar facility at Maastricht Aachen Airport.

The new facility, which opened early 2018, is located adjacent to SAMCO's existing facility and accommodates aircraft such as Airbus A321 neo and Boeing 737 MAX.

"We are very proud to have successfully completed the first heavy maintenance programs on the Bombardier C Series and we are looking forward to supporting our narrow body customers in the future." says Constant van Schaik, CEO of SAMCO.

"SAMCO's entry into the narrow body market is a logical step and we plan for a sustainable growth into this market."
