Direct Maintenance has restarted its Line Maintenance activities in Africa by re-opening the Line Maintenance station in Kilimanjaro International Airport in Tanzania.
The Line Maintenance station was launched due to the maintenance service agreement between Direct Maintenance and Edelweiss, Switzerland’s leading leisure travel airline.
The company will be providing line maintenance services for airline’s A340 fleet in both Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) and Abeid Amani Karume International Airport in Zanzibar (ZNZ), and will be performing daily checks , weekly checks and transit checks.
“When thinking about the expansion, we are focusing not only on Europe, but also in Africa – and the latest agreement with Edelweiss which lead to the establishment of permanent line maintenance station in Kilimanjaro is a good example of our continuous efforts to scale up in the region. I am very pleased that Edelweiss has decided to trust their fleet to our skilled professionals not only in Tanzania, but also in Zanzibar – and we are looking forward to a long-term relationship,“ said Mandeep Rana, head of sales at direct maintenance.
