Bird Aviation & SKY Express

Bird Aviation has been providing a range of services to SKY Express, including Line Maintenance night stop tasks, On-Call Maintenance Support, Base Maintenance Bridging Checks, and handling other Base and Line Maintenance ad-hoc requests. The collaboration operates without a General Terms Agreement (GTA), requiring Bird Aviation to assess each request on a case-by-case basis depending on availability and resources.

The main objectives across all projects include ensuring aircraft safety, compliance with regulatory requirements, minimising downtime through efficient maintenance practices, optimising operational performance, reducing overall costs, and providing exceptional customer service.
