January 7, 2016 – US-based MRO provider Aviation Technical Services (ATS) and Spanish low-cost carrier, Volotea Airlines (Volotea), are working together on an aircraft integration program for the introduction of several mid-life A319 aircraft into Volotea’s fleet.
According to the agreement, Volotea will focus on aircraft acquisition and operations, while ATS will provide turnkey technical fleet integration services. These services include overall program management, detailed aircraft records review, engineering for cabin interior changes and re-branding, and EASA certification of the final new configuration.
“By consolidating technical elements of the integration program with ATS, Volotea can focus on aircraft acquisition, network planning and operations,” said Alex Clerc, Volotea Deputy Chief Operations Officer. “This partnership allows Volotea to accelerate our growth plans by adding capacity at a faster rate and a reduced cost.”
