SAS A320neos to be serviced by Magnetic MRO
Magnetic MRO, a total technical care and asset management organization, and Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) has extended the base maintenance agreement for its A320neo fleet. The original contract between the two companies was signed in December 2017 but has been prolonged until 2023 and consists of maintenance visits of 56 aircraft.
“SAS’ A320neo fleet is brand new and just came out of [the] Airbus factory. And for our team of professionals here at Magnetic MRO, [this] is one more step forward working on new generation aircraft,” said Sergei Shkolnik, Base Maintenance Director at Magnetic MRO, in a press release from the company. “These new aircraft will serve as SAS' narrow-body fleet backbone for the next couple decades and we are honored to be chosen as partners for its base maintenance.”
The scope of work covered in the agreement is “technically demanding yet interesting,” the statement continues. “Magnetic MRO has an opportunity to work on the fleet for a long time. It allows [Magnetic MRO] to predict the maintenance needs and also serves as a great chance for the companies to mature together.”
