Aviation Technical Services (ATS) has formally reopened its 607,000sq-ft MRO complex at Kansas City International Airport following a refit and announced two new maintenance contracts.
Hawaiian Airlines is to send two of its 767s to the facility for nose-to-tail heavy maintenance checks in September, after which the carrier may sign a longer-term contract.
Meanwhile Air Canada has agreed a four-year deal with ATS to undertake modifications to its 787 aircraft. The contract extends a previous contract under which ATS modified three 787 aircraft at its facility in Washington. ATS will now complete a further 34 maintenance events at its revamped Kansas City site.
