South-Wales based Caerdav (formally Cardiff Aviation Ltd) is opening a line maintenance station for ASL Airlines France at Cardiff Airport with technicians from its facility at St Athan.
The facility is part of Caerdav’s new operator support service which it now offers in addition to worldwide Aircraft of Ground (AOG) support.
The new facility will provide routine maintenance for ASL Airlines France’s Boeing 737NG aircraft of which the airline has 6x -700 and 2x -800 models.
Yves Groshenry, Technical Director, ASL Airlines France, says: “Our aircraft will be operating according to a very intensive schedule out of Cardiff Airport, where downtime simply isn’t an option. Caerdav’s dedicated line maintenance station provides us with world-class engineering at the most convenient location possible, meeting our ongoing objective of strengthening and maintaining a high quality of service for our customers.”
Joachim Jones, CEO, Caerdav, says: “With our highly qualified team, we can easily establish line maintenance stations wherever required, worldwide.”
ASL Airlines France operates its aircraft on a wet-lease basis for other airlines and Caerdav’s team of technicians enables ASL Airlines France to maximise aircraft utilisation over the busy summer holiday season.
