Interflight reports super six months of sales
Interflight Aircraft Maintenance managed to keep a hangar open throughout the Coronavirus lockdown by putting in place social distancing and rotating shifts, tactics which have yielded a high volume of bookings.
Owners that were unable to fly decided to put their aircraft in for maintenance – good news for Interflight's Lee Sugden.

Biggin Hill airport-based Interflight Aircraft Maintenance has recorded twice the amount of sales in the first six months of this year, compared to the same period in 2019. Director of engineering Lee Sugden says: “We managed to keep the hangar open throughout the Coronavirus lockdown by putting in place social distancing and rotating shift patterns to keep our engineers safe. This has meant we've kept a steady flow of work coming in and allowed us to remain profitable during these difficult times.

“Customers have still needed their aircraft to be serviced and maintained, and the fact that they were not allowed to fly them has meant we've been extra busy. The great start to the year continued into July when we had nine aircraft in the hangar for maintenance.”

Interflight Aircraft Maintenance has an extensive approvals list comprising the Hawker 700, 800B, 750, 800/850XP, 900 and 1000, Hawker 400XP, Beechjet 400a and Gulfstream 550.
