The international airline has initially put two Airbus A319s through Caerdav’s maintenance hangars following a busy summer flight schedule, before the aircraft are returned to their lessors.

EasyJet chose Caerdav after being impressed by the capabilities and adaptability of its management and maintenance teams. The MRO removed and repaired an engine following a thorough inspection on one of the inputs – while still meeting the airline’s expectations for completion timescales.

Ian Boaler, Head of Fleet Transition, easyJet, said: “We need flexible partners for our end-of-lease checks, as inspections can reveal additional essential maintenance requirements. We have had a very positive experience – Caerdav has proved its ability to deliver on time, on budget, and adapt to our changing needs rapidly and effectively.”

EasyJet’s A319s were put through Caerdav’s 134,000 sq ft. facility at St. Athan, which features temperature-controlled hangar space and backshops for machining, welding, painting, composite repair and non-destructive testing.

Boaler added: “Caerdav’s facilities are excellent. The hangars are well-lit and spacious, with ample space for our aircraft, so we are confident that the required checks and maintenance operations are conducted quickly and safely – particularly as we’ve found Caerdav’s team to be highly engaged, enthusiastic and professional.”  

Caerdav completed easyJet’s inputs in December, alongside its work for a range of airlines and leasing fleets.
