TAG Aviation is pleased to announce that it has expanded its Mobile Repair Team (MRT) operations following a new collaboration with Polar Aviation of Finland. The new partnership will enable a MRT to be dispatched to clients within hours of any reported AOG issue anywhere in Europe as well as other Western countries, including Russia. Clients can now benefit from the joint resources of highly trained and skilled technicians with extensive maintenance experience being able to expediently diagnose and rectify faults for any kind of aircraft maintained by TAG and Polar Aviation wherever maintenance support is needed and, importantly, assist an aircraft out of base to reduce the time a plane is grounded. “This exciting collaboration means a far wider reach of our MRT capabilities. TAG is now able to serve clients from North to South and East to West, swiftly deploying qualified experts to attend any unforeseen AOG situation with the same technical capabilities, authorisation and quality systems as we employ in our repair centres”, said, Philippe Rabier, Vice President Maintenance Sales, TAG Aviation Europe. “Wherever in the world maintenance or repair is required, clients can be assured that mobile staff are able to quickly respond to their specific needs, ensuring greater flexibility and turnaround time.” “We are pleased about this new partnership and enthusiastic about the options and possibilities we together can provide to our mutual customers” said, Hanna Hakamo, CEO of Polar Aviation. “With our joined forces the customers can benefit from fast return to service and thus improved availability of their aircraft.” TAG Aviation boasts two heavy Maintenance Centres and a comprehensive network of approved MRO Line Stations in Europe as well as Asia and Africa.
