Posted 30 April 2019 · Add Comment

TUI Airways has chosen Cardiff Aviation for a new aircraft maintenance pipeline, comprising of 17 aircraft.

Above: Cardiff Aviation, chaired by Bruce Dickinson, began working with TUI Airways in 2018 .

Under the contract, TUI Airways, a leading leisure airline, will now put a series of Boeing 737-800s, 757s and a 767 through the St. Athan Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility for a wide variety of engineering works.

Cardiff Aviation’s skilled maintenance team will conduct cabin reconfigurations and end-of-lease phase-out checks, along with engine and landing gear replacements.
Some of the aircraft are returning from wet-lease with Canadian airline Sunwing, and will undergo interchecks as well as cabin reconfiguration in readiness for TUI Airways’ summer flying programme.

TUI Airways selected Cardiff Aviation as an outsourced maintenance provider, after being impressed with the MRO during a successful trial in summer 2018 which saw the MRO carry out works including engine changes and end-of-lease checks for a series of B737, 757 and 767 aircraft.

A spokesperson for TUI Airways said: “We built up a good relationship with Cardiff Aviation last summer when we needed extended MRO capacity on a flexible basis. The team at St. Athan were extremely accommodating and completed all work to budget. We are therefore confident about placing an extended programme of inputs with them ready for our peak summer season.”
