Magnetic MRO has integrated its line maintenance capabilities with Direct Maintenance, a certified line maintenance service provider that is part of Magnetic MRO.

    Magnetic MRO said it started the movement of its Tallinn-based line maintenance operations, together with respective outstations, under Direct Maintenance in January 2021.

    “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 Direct Maintenance’s CEO Jacco Klerk (pictured below).

    “Our divisions have combined a solid reputation in the market ranging from regional to narrow and widebody aircraft line maintenance, including home-based and heavy line maintenance with a wide range of services for AOG, ad-hoc, modifications, parking/storage and lease transitions.

    “By aligning these excellent capabilities for our customers, we provide a wealth of services to the industry with a single buy-in. We are on the move to becoming a preferred customer choice as a leading independent line maintenance organisation enhanced by a passioned and motivated team.”

    After the integration, the group’s line maintenance capabilities extend to providing services in 20+ stations globally, covering 70+ aircraft and engine combinations.

    “We already see some promising initial results and are looking forward to completing the integration and transition in 2022,” added Klerk. “Together with the integration, we have strengthened and expanded our station capabilities and our commercial and operations organisation to drive our business success forward.”
