Magnetic MRO, a total Technical Care and asset management organization, acquired through a public tender four Boeing 737 Classic aircraft from airBaltic. Following the delivery from Latvia’s flag carrier, all aircraft will continue their service within the fleets of latest owners.
Being the launch operator of Airbus A220, airBaltic operates a fleet of 36 aircraft, including twenty-one Airbus A220, twelve Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 NextGen, and 4 Boeing 737 CL, as of December 2019. the choice to sell Boeing 737 CL aircraft was a pre-planned move by airBaltic so as to concentrate on its new Airbus 220 fleet which delivers higher fuel efficiency and reduces the carbon footprint.
“In June 2019, we were awarded to accumulate four Boeing 737s. a number of these aircraft have an extended maintenance history at our MRO base in Tallinn. It’s delighting to witness the expansion of our cooperation beyond conventional MRO business – not only we keep aircraft airworthy, but also plan to take the ownership of the exact same assets and help airlines to manage their exit risks. Thus, we are grateful to our Latvian partners for entrusting these aircraft in our hands. After maintenance checks and customization works had been completed, the aircraft are placed into the hands of latest operators,” shared Risto Mäeots, the CEO of Magnetic MRO.
Martin Gauss, CEO of airBaltic: “Boeing 737 Classics were a notable a part of the airBaltic fleet for quite 10 years. They served as our breakthrough, helping to determine ourselves as a robust regional carrier. Now we are modernizing our fleet and counting on Airbus A220 as our future aircraft which will enable us to enhance efficiency and better connect Baltics to the planet .”
