SAS Scandinavian Airlines Airbus A320neo fleet to be fully maintained by Magnetic MRO
SAS
This is a lovely contract for the Estonian maintenance company Magnetic MRO and its main centre in Tallinn. SAS Scandinavian Airlines has decided to entrust it with base maintenance service for the whole Airbus A320neo fleet.

This contract extension was unveiled on 6th January and will cover a total of 56 aircraft. SAS currently operates with 25 A320neos, a type which will gradually replace its 737-800s.

The Scandinavian airline had already chosen Magnetic MRO for its current A320neo fleet with an initial contract which was signed in December 2017. This contract was recently extended until 2023, the date by which all the A320neos will have been delivered. SAS' A320neo fleet is powered by CFM International LEAP-1As.

For Sergei Shkolnik, Magnetic MRO's base maintenance activity director, the scope of work covered in this agreement is technically demanding yet interesting as Magnetic MRO has an opportunity to work on the fleet for a long time.

Remember that SAS Scandinavian Airlines had chosen Airbus to replace its medium-haul fleet, either with leased aircraft or through contracts signed directly with the European aircraft manufacturer. SAS is also waiting for three A321LRs, the first of which is expected this year.

Its 737 NG fleet is on the way out (around fifty 737-700/800s still in operation) and SAS has called on the Irish company Eirtech Aviation for a significant number of re-deliveries which belong to multiple lessors. This programme was also renewed for the period from January 2020 - end of 2023 (Phase II End of Lease Redelivery Programme).
