The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has awarded Sabena Technics with an Airbus A380 base maintenance rating, allowing the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider to perform structural repairs, modifications and upgrades for A380 operators.
“Our dedicated A380 hangar is already fully booked until the third quarter of 2014 and we are now ready to take orders for 2015 and beyond, for which we expect the demand for 2, 4 and 6 year checks to bring a sustained level of business,” said Jean-Luc Fournel, COO of customer operations at Sabena Technics.
The A380 base rating, gives Sabena Technics its fourth new capability for providing aircraft maintenance in 2012. More
