Iberia Maintenance returns 38 aircraft into operation from park and storage With the lifting of travel restrictions and improved flight bookings, Iberia Maintenance has supported its customers to increase the number of operating aircraft in their fleets and has returned 38 A320 aircraft into operation from its customer base during the last ten months.
Apart from the return to operation tasks, which included cover removal, system tests and wheels and brakes checks, amongst others, Iberia Maintenance has also carried out heavy maintenance programmes required for these aircraft. These checks were due before the entry-into-service of the aircraft, some in combination with an end-of-lease agreement.
During the performance of the maintenance tasks, several complex repairs were required and carried out by Iberia Maintenance staff. The execution of these tasks, involving significant sheet metal, fitting and composites skills, required Iberia Maintenance’s highly skilled and experienced workforce together with engineering to work in close cooperation with the OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer) to develop tailor-made solutions.
