TAP Maintenance & Engineering Brazil performs C-checks on TAP fleet aircraft
Rio de Janeiro, Nov. 4, 2010. As the controlling company of TAP Maintenance & Engineering Brazil since 2005, TAP Portugal will now take advantage of Rio de Janeiro facilities of its Latin American subsidiary to perform C-checks on a series of A330/A340 aircraft in its fleet. Upon completion of the program’s initial stage, the first aircraft was delivered to TAP Lisbon on October 10. The nose-to-tail services provided for the aircraft were done in line, at Galeão airport, thus avoiding undesirable costs of transfers to position the airplanes for the overhaul. The program will run through mid-February, with a short break in December, in order to make better commercial use of the aircraft. It is expected that other airplanes from TAP's fleet arrive at the hangars of TAP M&E Brazil yet this year.
