OGMA, an Embraer’s Group company, has reached a historic milestone by becoming the first authorized maintenance centre certified by the Portuguese aeronautical authority (Autoridade Nacional da Aviação Civil – ANAC) to carry out commercial aircraft heavy maintenance for the E-Jets E2 family of commercial aircraft in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The announcement was made during the global Embraer Operators Conference (EOC), which is being held in Lisbon. Therefore, OGMA expands its business operations in the commercial aviation segment.
With this certification, OGMA is prepared to carry out heavy maintenance, total fleet management, engineering solutions, airworthiness management, support maintenance, and future aircraft modifications that meet customer requirements and retrofit the family’s aircraft of E-Jets E2. In addition, OGMA has just signed a contract with the Norwegian airline Wideroe to carry out the first maintenance of an E2 aircraft.
“We are delighted to reach such an important milestone, which results from the tireless work of a great team. Being the first Embraer authorized maintenance centre for the E2 in the EMEA region is an important credential for OGMA in such a competitive and demanding sector as the international aviation market. This is just the starting point of an important cycle for the company’s growth, with more business, new customers and opportunities,” said Alexandre Solis, CEO of OGMA.
