Icelandair expands maintenance partnership with Monarch Aircraft Engineering

Monarch Aircraft Engineering (MAEL), the leading independent MRO provider, has won an expanded maintenance commitment from Icelandair.

Icelandair, which has been a MAEL customer since 2003, has increased its current maintenance commitment to include base maintenance for a fifth aircraft – a Boeing 757 heavy check to take place at MAEL’s Luton facility.

The MRO provider carried out a check to Icelandair’s B757 freighter aircraft last November and currently has the second of three planned B767-300 aircraft in maintenance at MAEL in Luton.  

We are extremely pleased that Icelandair have awarded Monarch Aircraft Engineering this additional heavy maintenance check. Icelandair is a highly valued customer and this commitment further strengthens our strong, longstanding partnership.

Andy Lowi, Business Development Manager at Monarch Aircraft Engineering

Since becoming an independent MRO provider in October 2017, MAEL has announced a wide range of new agreements with airlines. In addition to Icelandair, these include Virgin Atlantic Airways, China Airlines, Wizz Air and La Compagnie.
