Posted 5 June 2018 · Add Comment

Monarch Aircraft Engineering (MAEL) and Thomas Cook Aircraft Engineering, have entered a landmark agreement where MAEL will handle elements of Thomas Cook Airlinesí line maintenance across the UK.

Thomas Cook Airlines’ line maintenance has been transferred to MAEL at five UK airports - Gatwick, Birmingham, Glasgow, Newcastle and East Midlands. As part of this, line maintenance engineers working for Thomas Cook Airlines at those locations have transferred across to MAEL.

MAEL has a well-established line maintenance operation, with permanent year-round stations at 10 airports across the UK and mainland Europe, where it provides line maintenance support including all levels of maintenance on Airbus, Boeing, Embraer and Bombardier aircraft types.

It was named 'Line Maintenance Provider of the Year 2017' at the 2017 Aviation 100 Gala Awards.

Chris Dare, Managing Director of Monarch Aircraft Engineering, said: “We welcome this opportunity to partner with such a leading airline brand as Thomas Cook Airlines and its engineering team which, like ours, is highly skilled and reputed.

“This agreement enables us to deliver effective, efficient and high-quality line maintenance for Thomas Cook Airlines at multiple locations across the UK.”

Geir Steiro, Group Airline Director of Maintenance at Thomas Cook Airlines said: "Monarch Aircraft Engineering’s proven reputation and skills as a business, particularly in line maintenance, made them the obvious choice as a partner. This agreement is just the latest phase in a longstanding relationship between our two companies and follows many years of base maintenance support that Monarch Aircraft Engineering has provided to Thomas Cook Airlines."

Monarch Aircraft Engineering has provided maintenance and repair overhaul services for more than 50 years and has significant experience, working with some of the world's leading airlines.

Since becoming an independent MRO provider in October 2017, MAEL has announced a wide range of new agreements with airlines which, in addition to Thomas Cook, include Virgin Atlantic Airways, China Airlines, Wizz Air, Icelandair and La Compagnie.
