Sabena technics performs first B787 C-Check

Following the recent news of the acquisition of Air Europa by IAG, the airline has enlisted Sabena technics to perform base maintenance operations on two of its Boeing 787-8.

Philippe Rochet, CEO of Sabena technics, commented: “Our teams handled this project with great enthusiasm, hard work and dedication and made sure to put safety and quality first! We are thrilled to have Air Europa as our launching customer for base maintenance checks on the Dreamliner aircraft and look forward to increasing our B787 capability.”

For the past two years, Sabena technics has also been providing Air Europa with airframe solutions for its fleet of A330s.

Sabena technics will also be opening in January 2020 its brand new 10 000 sqm hangar in Bordeaux.

The facility will be able to accommodate, in maintenance or modifications activities, a long-range wide-body aircraft up to A350-1000/B777-9X or up to two B787 simultaneously.
