Direct Maintenance welcomes TAP Portugal at Berlin-Tegel (TXL)

Portuguese national flag carrier TAP Portugal and Direct Maintenance have recently entered into a line maintenance partnership at Berlin-Tegel airport (TXL). The qualified and experienced team of Direct Maintenance engineers has been tasked to perform the scheduled and unscheduled line maintenance activities required to keep the TAP Portugal fleet in excellent shape while on the ground at Berlin-Tegel Airport. The agreement covers the A320 family which is the regular type operated, however the A330 fleet has been included as well in case additional capacity is deployed at peak moments.

Frank Daams, Managing Director comments: “We are truly delighted to welcome yet another national flag carrier to our customer base at TXL, which is growing steadily. In particular we appreciate the professional yet friendly relationship we enjoy with TAP Portugal. Direct Maintenance is well placed to assist TAP Portugal while going forward into the future as we are A320NEO certified. I’m convinced our customer focused team in Berlin will do whatever it takes to ensure safe and smooth flights can be conducted, to full satisfaction and comfort of the TAP Portugal passengers. We look forward being in business together for many years to come.”
