European MRO Sabena technics will provide aircraft base maintenance services for Virgin Atlantic at its Bordeaux facility for the Airbus A330-900 model aircraft. The contract is for more than five years, with the first aircraft expected to land in BOD airport in 2024.

“Virgin Atlantic has very high requirements for suppliers and services, the fact that Sabena technics has been awarded with this contract reinforces our position as the expert on next-gen aircraft at our site in Bordeaux,” said Philippe Rochet, CEO of Sabena technics. “It is also important to highlight that Virgin Atlantic, a UK-based carrier, will be benefitting from the proximity between London and Bordeaux not only for logistics purposes, but as well globally contributing to low-carbon footprint during positional flights.”

“Virgin Atlantic are thrilled to embark on this partnership with Sabena technics. Their location, experience and capability on this fleet type was a differentiator for us. We very much look forward to the first event in 2024,” said Alain Cain, Outsourced Base Maintenance Manager of Virgin Atlantic.
