Alberto Linés, Air Europa’s Maintenance and Engineering Director said, “We would like to congratulate the Fokker team for their first A330 base maintenance check. For Air Europa it is paramount to match committed aircraft downtimes and Fokker successfully matched the dates. We fully recognize they made a great job with very good planning and controlled execution.”
