GA Telesis Engine Services acquires a part of Finnair’s Engine Services

GA Telesis and Finnair have signed an agreement whereby GA Telesis will acquire a part of Finnair’s Engine Services and employ 80 engine services professionals from Finnair’s Engine Services. The deal comprises of the sale of tools and the transfer of the personnel to GA Telesis Engine Services Oy. GA Telesis Engine Service Oy will rent their facilities from Finnair Facilities Management.
GA Telesis Engine Services (GATES) will begin operations at Helsinki Airport, offering repair and overhaul of General Electric CF6-80C2, CFM International CFM56-5B and -5C, and Pratt & Whitney PW2000 jet engines. GATES is the only operation of its kind with direct trucking routes to the Russian and Eastern-European markets.
“We welcome GA Telesis to Helsinki Airport, and are happy for the continued employment offered to the dedicated professionals who will form the core of GATES”, says Jaakko Schildt, Vice President, Technical Operations, Finnair. In summer 2012, Finnair announced it will discontinue its own Engine Services operations at Helsinki Airport, as the company focuses on its core airline operations.
“We have always been impressed by the quality of the Finnair Engine Services team, and look forward to commencing our operations with this team of dedicated professionals” commented Abdol Moabery, President & CEO of GA Telesis, LLC.
GA Telesis is one of the world’s largest providers of products, financial services and supply-chain solutions to the aerospace industry.
