Air Lease Corporation (ALC)

Guaranteed TATs are critical for ALC as they transition aircraft to new operators – working with MRO partners in The Netherlands.

Air Lease Corporation, the US-based aircraft leasing company has a fleet of 300+ aircraft and is a leading global aircraft lessor. ALC is confident that MAAS Aviation will deliver the highest quality and consistent TAT and this is the basis of a trusted relationship that has been established for more than twenty-five years. Recently, MAAS completed an Embraer 175 and a A320NEO in Vistara livery for ALC at our Maastricht facility where Part 145 services were supplied by Lufthansa Technik. However, the majority of aircraft painting programmes for ALC are co-ordinated with our MRO partners, Fokker Technics at Woensdrecht.

The most critical factor for leasing companies is the TAT for each base maintenance check and subsequent painting project. This must be met to enable the lessor to deliver the aircraft to its new operator in accordance with their lease terms. The new operator is normally on-site to accept the transitioning asset in their brand livery so strict procedures guided by a focus on teamwork and partnership are essential.
