Flight International online news 09:30GMT: Air Canada Technical Services (ACTS) will begin providing heavy maintenance work for US Airways’ Airbus A330 fleet from next week.

The agreement is one of a number of deals currently being arranged between US Airways and ACTS' parent ACE Aviation Holdings, which today completed a planned $75 million investment in the carrier in conjunction with its merger with America West Airlines, and exit from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

The investment represents about 7% of the new US Airways equity.

ACE says that in addition to the A330 work, “significant progress” has been made on finalising agreements for maintenance, repair and overhaul work to be outsourced to ACTS.

Discussions, it says, are continuing relating to ACTS performing “an extensive range of aircraft maintenance and overhaul work on the new US Airways’ combined fleet of 361 aircraft”. This includes Boeing 737, 757 and 767 aircraft as well as Airbus A320 family aircraft models.
