Magnetic MRO, the Estonia-based, China-owned, maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider, and Enter Air, Poland’s largest charter carrier, have signed a three-year contract for power-by-hour (PBH) support for the airline’s fleet of 19 Boeing 737-800s.
The recently signed agreement includes scheduled and 24/7 ad-hoc supply of components, component repair management, loan, exchange and warranty support services for the carrier’s Boeing 737NG fleet at Warsaw Chopin, Katowice-Pyrzowice and at its other main airports of operations.
“As a charter airline, Enter Air is nothing but a demanding customer to any PBH provider. What has brought Magnetic MRO into the arena is the fusion of our growing asset management expertise combined with extensive component maintenance capabilities by our new shareholder Guangzhou Hangxin Aviation Technology (Hangxin),” states Inga Duglas, commercial director at Magnetic MRO (formerly Air Maintenance Estonia).
“Being one of the largest charter airlines in the region, we need efficient component supply in order to ensure the fleet’s smooth performance. However, launching and maintaining an extended stock of non-critical components requires substantial investments and an additional team to run it. Luckily, together with Magnetic MRO and their PBH programme, we will be able to keep our component supply, repair and overhaul costs optimised while maintaining high fleet performance and timely AOG [Aircraft on Ground] support,” says Mariusz Olechno, chief technical officer at Enter Air.
Headquartered in Tallinn, Estonia, the company maintains a presence in Europe, the CIS, Africa and North America.
