Fokker Aircraft Services (FAS) has been contracted to provide extensive nose-to-tail maintenance and C-checks for Germania Airline’s current generation Boeing 737 aircraft.
After servicing, three of the aircraft will retire to FAS’ Boeing Storage Programme, and while there will undergo routine service to maintain airworthiness until such time that they re-enter service. The remaining two aircraft will return to Germania for operation until October. Then they too will be phased out and will join Fokker Aircraft Service’s Boeing Storage Programme.
Thanks to Fokker Aircraft Services’ extensive backshops, its support and services cover the overhaul and repair of landing gear, the aircraft interior – to include the re-skinning of interior panels, emergency equipment, composites, tubes and welded assemblies, plus proprietary parts, with expanded capabilities to include sheet metal work, speed shop (machining, milling, etc.), non-destructive inspection, surface treatment, painting of the livery in cooperation with MAAS, and other customised solutions.
“Our ‘one-stop’ philosophy means that we can perform nearly all maintenance and repair tasks right here at our facilities. This is why we consistently meet our guaranteed turnaround times. The high importance we place on meeting our commitments proves the quality and dedication of our maintenance engineers,” says Michiel Van Aken, Sales Director.
FAS has been servicing Germania aircraft since 1995, starting with the maintenance of the airline’s Fokker 100 fleet.
