TUI Airways has placed a further four aircraft into Caerdav’s MRO facilities to undergo a range of maintenance work.
The two Boeing 757 and two 767 aircraft had reached the end of their current lease, TUI Airways said.
Some 40 aircraft have been through Caerdav’s St. Athan base since the two companies began working together in 2019.
“We have developed an excellent relationship with Caerdav over the past two years – something that has been brought into even sharper focus during the Covid-19 pandemic,” said TUI Airline’s outsourced maintenance manager Juergen Jerome.
“The team has delivered storage and maintenance support for a number of aircraft while the industry was grounded, including an engine change and end of lease work. What keeps us coming back to St. Athan is Caerdav’s quality, consistency and flexibility, with a skilled team that is able to shift focus when required – nothing is too much to ask.”
Caerdav head of commercial Richard Pitts-Robinson commented: “TUI is a fantastic airline to work with; to be entrusted with the range of maintenance work they have brought into St. Athan is a huge endorsement of the standard of work we’ve been able to complete for them.”
