Following on from 40 aircraft that have been through Caerdav’s St. Athan base since the two companies began working together in 2019, the latest work involves two Boeing 757 and two 767 aircraft that had reached the end of their current lease.

Juergen Jerome, Outsourced Maintenance Manager at TUI Airline says: “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.

“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.”

This flexibility comes to the fore when preparing aircraft for the end of their operational lease with TUI, allowing for any unforeseen maintenance jobs that form part of the process, allowing for a seamless transition back to the aircraft owners.

Richard Pitts-Robinson, Head of Commercial at Caerdav, adds: “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.”

TUI Airways is part of TUI Airline which is an integral pillar of the world’s leading tourism group. The broad portfolio gathered under the Group umbrella consists of strong tour operators, 1,600 travel agencies and leading online portals, five airlines with around 150 aircraft, over 400 hotels, 15 cruise liners and many incoming agencies in all major holiday destinations around the globe. It covers the entire tourism value chain under one roof. This integrated offering enables TUI to provide 27 million customers (2019) with an unmatched holiday experience in 180 regions.

Caerdav is a fully-approved and certified MRO and pilot training company based at the St. Athan - Cardiff Airport Aerospace Enterprise Zone in South Wales, United Kingdom.

Operating from a former RAF maintenance base equipped with 6,000ft ILS runway and parking for up to 20 narrow-bodied airliners, Caerdav specialises in MRO work for Airbus 320s and Boeing 737s and provides complete training for airline pilots and cabin crew.
