LOT Aircraft Maintenance Services has completed a trio of heavy checks for Spanish carrier Air Europa.
The latest event, a C-check on a Boeing 737-800, was begun on 8 January and required around 8,000 man-hours over 32 days, says the Polish MRO provider.
It adds that the check included repair of fatigue damage in the front wall of the aircraft’s nose landing gear well and modification of the 737’s ADS-B surveillance equipment.
The two previous checks were completed on Air Europa Embraer 195s – one in April 2019 and the other in October.
Cirium fleets data shows that the Madrid-based Air Europa has nine 20 737-800s, 15 787s, 10 Airbus A330s, 11 E195s, and nine ATR 72 turboprops. The carrier has 10 787s and 20 737 Max 8s on order.
LOTAMS supports 787s in addition to 737s and E-Jets.
Air Europa parent Globalia last year agreed to divest the airline to IAG. The transaction is set to be completed during the second half of this year.
