Magnetic MRO has integrated its line maintenance capabilities with Direct Maintenance, a certified line maintenance service provider that is part of the company.
In January this year, Magnetic MRO started the movement of its Tallinn based line maintenance, together with respective outstations, under Direct Maintenance.
“We see strong demand and interest from the market that airlines are pivoting to independent line-maintenance providers offering a more comprehensive range of solutions across a strategic network of stations,” said Jacco Klerk, CEO at Direct Maintenance. “While pricing remains an important element, solution when needed, where needed in this recovery enviroment is observed as a key element – a perfect match with the DNA of Direct Maintenance.”
After the integration, the group’s line maintenance capabilities extends to providing services in more than 20 stations globally. The capabilities cover more than 70 aircraft and engine combinations, including A320NEO, A350-900/1000, A380. B787, B747-8. The group is also expanding coverage to new generation of aircraft, including Airbus A330NEO and Boeing B777-X. There are also plans to further expand on stations internationally.
„The succeses of our joint teams in the past period, speak dividend in our approach of “we can, we do and we care” towards our clients, maintained aircraft and our valued personnel. I can not credit enough our people for their dedication and elements of fun we have to underline our ambition and passion.
Although it just started, we already see some promising initial results and are looking forward to completing the integration and transition in 2022. Together with the integration, we have strengthened and expanded our station capabilities and our commercial and operations zorganization to drive our business success forward,“ added Mr Klerk.
Risto Mäeots, CEO at Magnetic MRO, also shared „We noticed that an airline is often stranded with numerous service providers, each with its own ‘handwriting’. And we had to admit that market was offering what is convenient for service providers, not what customers actually need. From consolidating our existing line maintenance under one leadership to the future global growth in network, we will absolutely praise the challenge to be pioneer and to offer comfort in every aspect – thus we praise this next step we are taking togeher with Direct Maintenance“.
