Iceland-based operator Eagle Air has renewed the support contract for maintenance repair and operations with Germany-based aircraft manufacturer Deutsche Aircraft. Under the contract Deutsche Aircraft will continue to provide maintenance for Eagle's Do 328-110. The companies have had a similar agreement running since February 2020 when Deutsche Aircraft's maintenance division operated under the 328 Support Services name. The contract renewal will span another two years, and will support any base maintenance at Deutsche Aircraft's HQ near Munich and troubleshooting at Reykjavik.
“As we operate our Do 328 on a variety of missions within Iceland, we need a reliable maintenance service provider to guarantee operational readiness of the flagship of our fleet," says Eagle Air technical manager Björn S Eggertsson. "Over the last two years Deutsche Aircraft has proven to be that partner. We are happy to extend the maintenance contract for a further two years.”
The Scandinavian multirole airline has been using a Do 328 turboprop since the summer of 2018. It is mainly used for passenger transport within the island. Deutsche Aircraft will conduct the maintenance procedures at its facilities at Oberpfaffenhofen airport near Munich.
Deutsche Aircraft managing director Dave Jackson adds: “We have supported Eagle Air with the maintenance since its 50 year anniversary as an airline in 2020. We are proud to keep working with a reliable and professional business partner.”
