Lausa Air Signs New North American MRO Agreements

While the majority of the Lausa Air fleet service is provided by Direct Maintenance (www.directmaintenance.nl) based out of Amsterdam Schiphol (EHAM), there are certain aircraft the airline flies that would best be serviced closer to the regions they serve. These aircraft include Beechcraft B1900D and King Air 350, and Boeing 737-800 and 737-900s assigned to North America under Lausa Air and Lausa City Flyer designations. All other aircraft service, including that for Lausa Air’s new Boeing 747-8F, will be conducted by Direct Maintenance per prior contract agreements.

Lausa Air, virtual airline for London Aviators USA (www.lausa.uk), has issued a memorandum of understanding with Hawker Beechcraft Services (HBS) for a long-term service contract for Lausa Air’s fleet of Beechcraft B1900D and King Air 350 aircraft. With the close-proximity of HBS’ recently expanded Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport facility (KIWA) to Lausa Air’s Metro Oakland hub (KOAK), HBS was the obvious choice for Lausa Air which flies its B1900Ds under the LAUSA City Flyer banner, and King Air 350s under part 135 operations.

HBS has 10 service centers located across the U.S., Mexico and the United Kingdom offering world-class service and professional aircraft maintenance and repair. Because the service centers are factory owned, they offer access to its knowledge base of factory expertise and engineering data. For more information, visit www.hawkerbeechcraft.com.

For Lausa Air’s North American-based Boeing 737-800 and -900 aircraft, they are looking to North State Aviation who recently announced they will be converting the old Piedmont and Pace Airline facility at Smith Reynolds Airport in Winston-Salem, North Carolina (KINT). Announced March 1, 2012, North State Aviation plans on hiring over 120 mechanics, with estimates forecasting over 300 jobs over the next four years. The North Carolina facility will reduce ferry times for Lausa Air as they move their East Coast operations from Tampa back to Orlando, Florida.
