JorAMCo signed at the show maintenance agreements with UK charter carrier Thomas Cook and Turkey's Tailwind Airlines.

The Jordanian aircraft maintenance company says the Thomas Cook deal covers three Airbus A330 C checks, the first of which was recently completed. It is the first time JorAMCo, which has been trying to expand into the European market, has overhauled an aircraft for a UK carrier.

JorAMCo says the Tailwind contract covers maintenance services and modification work for the airline's Boeing 737-400 fleet. The Turkish charter and wet-lease carrier now operates three 737-400s with another two to be delivered by the end of 2010.

Tailwind launched charter services earlier this year and is planning to begin scheduled services in 2010.
