September 20, 2018 / MICHAEL GUBISCH
Air Malta has engaged US maintenance provider AAR to provide Airbus A320neo component support.AAR says the hour-based maintenance deal spans nose-to-tail ATA chapter coverage for airframe, engine and APU line-replaceable units, and includes the supply of on-site inventory to the airline's Malta base. The deal is an expansion of a previous component maintenance agreement for a "recently delivered" A320ceo, says the MRO provider. Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that Air Malta in April added to its fleet a 2012-vintage A320ceo previously operated by SriLankan Airlines and in June introduced a new A320neo.
