Lufttransport carries out charter and scheduled flights on behalf of the government, international research institutions and private customers. The company ensures continuous accessibility to remote destinations in northern Norway as well as on the Lofoten and Spitsbergen islands in harsh and demanding environments. Lufttransport has two Dornier 228s. As the two aircraft are indispensable for the airline, the schedule for the maintenance was accordingly tight.
Normally the 72-month inspection takes about two months. In order to keep operations going, Lufttransport AS needed to have the aircraft back in service within six weeks. This is why RUAG’s MRO experts designed a schedule tailored to the customer’s needs and completed the full inspection in those six weeks. In parallel with the 72-month inspection, the team in Oberpfaffenhofen also resolved various service bulletins.
