Air Canada today assured customers that it continues to operate its normal schedule and that they can book and travel with confidence despite Aveos Inc.’s closure. The airline has identified qualified and government approved maintenance facilities in Canada and the U.S. to perform work previously done by Aveos.
The transition to new service providers is underway and will have no impact on customers. For example, three aircraft scheduled for maintenance this week will go to Canadian maintenance providers currently used by other Canadian and international airlines. In addition, arrangements are being made to complete the maintenance of the three aircraft remaining at Aveos facilities.
Aveos Fleet Performance Inc. (Aveos), a separate and independently owned and managed supplier to Air Canada, that provided maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services to airlines, including Air Canada, filed for insolvency protection under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act(CCAA) earlier this week.
The closure of Aveos Inc's airframe, engine and component maintenance facilities has no impact on Air Canada’s day-to-day aircraft maintenance and repair activities, referred to as “line maintenance”. This work is performed directly by Air Canada at its own facilities across Canada - including Montreal, Vancouver, Toronto and Winnipeg - by Air Canada’s 2,300 maintenance employees. The airline typically performs its line maintenance activities overnight or between flights, as necessary.
