SmartLynx Airlines selects Magnetic MRO for base maintenance support

Magnetic MRO and SmartLynx Airlines are expanding their long-term cooperation by signing an agreement under which Magnetic MRO will execute a number of heavy maintenance events for the airline during the upcoming winter season.

Under the newly signed agreement, SmartLynx Airlines’ fleet of Airbus 320-200 aircraft will go through heavy maintenance in Magnetic MRO hangars in Tallinn, Estonia. The C-Checks will be performed during layover from November 2014 to February 2015.

Magnetic MRO specializes in providing total technical care, including heavy maintenance for narrow-body commercial aircraft, as well as component maintenance, spare parts supply, engineering and other services, enabling full support during the C-checks and less down time for maintenance.

“We are very happy to service SmartLynx Airlines’ aircraft with our heavy maintenance program in our facilities. SmartLynx was the very first Magnetic MRO (then Air Maintenance Estonia) client with its A320 aircraft, and the good and fruitful cooperation between our companies is continuing with the C-Checks during the upcoming winter season,” said Sergei Shkolnik, Base Maintenance Director of Magnetic MRO.

SmartLynx Airlines is an airline based in Riga, Latvia. SmartLynx specializes in wet lease services and provides full charter operation for its home markets of Latvia and Estonia, predominantly in the leisure market.
