Aircraft maintenance specialist Eirtech Aviation has struck a new three-year agreement with Scandinavian airline SAS.

Under the terms of the deal, the Shannon-based company will handle end-of-lease maintenance for 40 of the airline’s aircraft.

The planes will pass through Eirtech’s technical services department to ensure that they are returned to the lessor in the condition agreed under their lease.

Eirtech chief executive Niall Cunningham said the Irish company had gone through a rigorous tendering process to win the contract and had seen off stiff competition.

“We have the requisite experience for this size of project and, having worked with SAS previously, have been able to demonstrate our ability to match our team and skill set to every project requirement, ” Mr Cunningham said.

Martin Haglund, head of aircraft transfer at SAS, said the Irish company had to satisfy a range of very specific criteria to win the contract.
