AMAC is right on track for 2020 bookings
A contract for checks and a partial cabin refurbishment on a Global 5000 has been signed by AMAC this month. Not to mention a recently completed Boeing and a pair of head of state Airbus jets.
The AMAC hangars are full to the brim at the moment.

AMAC Aerospace has successfully re-delivered a Boeing B737 on time, as part of its busy winter programme. The company's headquarters in Basel has also been awarded with several new maintenance projects, including cabin refurbishments for two head of state Airbus aircraft.

The recent B737 underwent a full cabin interior refurbishment and, in addition, a heavy base maintenance was carried out by AMAC's technicians. “We performed to the client's fullest satisfaction in terms of quality and last minute design changes by the principal,” says Alexis Ott, director maintenance sales and key account management.

The head of state Airbus A320 will undergo a C-Check package, a Ka-band installation and a cabin interior refurbishment. AMAC will replace the seats and sofas in the A320. On the second aircraft, an Airbus A321, AMAC will undertake a D-Check, a landing gear overhaul and a partial cabin refurbishment. The company will also replace the carpet on the aircraft.

At the start of January, a privately-owned Airbus A319 entered AMAC's hangar to undergo a 1A, 3A due maintenance check. By the end of this month, AMAC will welcome another Airbus A319 to carry out a four-month check, 1A check and a due maintenance; its technicians will perform an ADSB-Out installation on the privately-owned aircraft.

A contract for a 15 and 30 month check, a 500/750 hours check and a partial cabin refurbishment on a Bombardier Global 5000 has also been signed and AMAC will welcome the privately-owned aircraft at the beginning of January.
