Direct Maintenance starts B787 line maintenance for LOT Polish Airlines

Direct Maintenance was appointed by the national carrier of Poland, LOT Polish Airlines, to provide line maintenance support to their B787-8 Dreamliner flights operating to Zanzibar (ZNZ) in Tanzania. The inaugural B787 flight to the small spice island off the coast of Tanzania mainland was operated on Saturday 8 November. LOT Polish Airlines is another national carrier Direct Maintenance supports with dedicated line maintenance solutions. LOT Polish Airlines is the B787-8 RR Trent engines launch customer for Direct Maintenance and its second B787 Dreamliner line maintenance customer airline.

Frank Daams, Managing Directors comments: "In past years we have invested significantly in the latest generation of aircraft models, including the B787 Dreamliner. We are very pleased LOT Polish Airlines was keen to team up with us in Zanzibar to ensure safe and smooth operations are conducted, at affordable cost levels. Following the successful first handling, all of us at Direct Maintenance look forward to an excellent teaming in the time to come, which is truly adding value to both partners."
