SR Technics has opened a line station at East Midlands airport.

The Swiss maintenance provider's network of UK line stations already spans Belfast, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London – Gatwick, Heathrow and Stansted – and Manchester.

Zurich-based SR Technics says its UK line stations have been newly approved to support Airbus A350 and A330neo aircraft.

The A330neo is set to enter service with Portuguese carrier TAP later this year.
