Direct Maintenance and FedEx Express have signed a line maintenance support agreement at Nairobi Airport, Kenya.
The agreement is both the first for Direct Maintenance and FedEx Express in Nairobi, and for the Direct Maintenance stations network, primarily focusing on transit checks for the 777 freighter.
“It has been a dream to work with the FedEx team and their support in the set-up phase has been phenomenal,” said Victoria Goodenough, head of business development at Direct Maintenance, a member of Magnetic Group.
“To witness both our local Nairobi team and the FedEx teams working together to ensure a smooth set up has been exceptional, despite some delays we faced as a result of travel restrictions to Africa at the beginning of the year.”
Direct Maintenance’s NBO, DAR and JRO station manager Daniel de Dardel commented: “We at Direct Maintenance and the Nairobi station are very pleased to have been chosen by FedEx Express. We are looking forward to a great partnership. In addition, the FedEx team did a marvellous job introducing us to their maintenance system and aircraft handling – we could not be happier to welcome them to Nairobi.”
