Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services has extended its agreement with Thomas Cook Airlines covering heavy maintenance work on the UK carrier’s fleet of 767 aircraft.
Under the terms of the renewed deal, which runs for an undisclosed period, Boeing Shanghai will perform C-checks on the aircraft at its base at Shanghai Pudong International Airport.
The joint venture between Boeing, Shanghai Airport Authorities and China Eastern Airlines began work on the 767s in September.
The extended contract follows the successful completion of C-checks for the leisure airline in 2015 and 2016.
“We have been very pleased with the heavy maintenance work Boeing Shanghai delivered to us in the past year,” said Bernd Bechtel, head of maintenance procurement of Thomas Cook Group Airlines.
“The expansion of our long-term cooperation with Boeing Shanghai is a testament to our continued satisfaction with the value and service Boeing provides. This new contract will enhance the reliability and cost effectiveness of the Thomas Cook Group Airlines operation.”
