British Airways Line Maintenance Lands Qatar Airways Contract Extension
British Airways’ line maintenance team has recently won the contract to provide technical handling for Qatar Airways’ 787 flights in Edinburgh.
British Airways has also been selected this year to support the Qatar Airways operation at Dallas/Fort Worth, Kigali and Moscow.
British Airways already provides line maintenance services for fellow one world airline Qatar Airways at Philadelphia, Atlanta, Barcelona, Entebbe, Manchester, Houston, Lagos, Madrid and London Heathrow.
British Airways will also provide maintenance for Qatar Airways’ A380 flights at Heathrow from October, taking the number of Qatar Airways’ aircraft types supported by British Airways at Heathrow to six.
British Airways’ commercial engineering manager, Ken Williams, said: “We’re very proud that Qatar Airways has again chosen British Airways’ engineering expertise to maintain its aircraft.
“This takes the number of Qatar Airways’ destinations that British Airways supports to 13, with approximately 6,000 aircraft movements per year.
