In January 2021, Magnetic MRO started the movement of its Tallinn based line maintenance, together with respective outstations, under Direct Maintenance.

„We see strong demand and interest from the market that airlines are pivoting to independent line-maintenance providers offering a more comprehensive range of solutions across a strategic network of stations. While pricing remains an important element, solution when needed, where needed in this recovery enviroment is observed as a key element – a perfect match with the DNA of Direct Maintenance.

Our divisions have combined a solid reputation in the market ranging from regional- to narrow- and wide-body aircraft line-maintenance, including home-based and heavy line-maintenance with a wide range of services for AOG, ad-hoc, modifications, parking/storage and lease transitions. By aligning these excellent capabilities for our customers, we provide a wealth of services to the industry with a single buy-in. We are on the move to becoming a preferred customer choice as a leading independent line maintenance organization enhanced by passioned and motivated team,“ shared Jacco Klerk, CEO at Direct Maintenance.

B787, B747-8, as well as progress into new generation of aircraft, covering Airbus A330NEO and Boeing B777-X, and gearing up for further expansion on stations internationally.

„The succeses of our joint teams in the past period, speak dividend in our approach of “we can, we do and we care” towards our clients, maintained aircraft and our valued personnel. I can not credit enough our people for their dedication and elements of fun we have to underline our ambition and passion.

Although it just started, we already see some promising initial results and are looking forward to completing the integration and transition in 2022. Together with the integration, we have strengthened and expanded our station capabilities and our commercial and operations zorganization to drive our business success forward,“ added Mr Klerk.

Risto MäeotsCEO at Magnetic MRO, also shared „We noticed that an airline is often stranded with numerous service providers, each with its own ‘handwriting’. And we had to admit that market was offering what is convenient for service providers, not what customers actually need. From consolidating our existing line maintenance under one leadership to the future global growth in network, we will absolutely praise the challenge to be pioneer and to offer comfort in every aspect – thus we praise this next step we are taking togeher with Direct Maintenance“.
