Direct Maintenance, a Certified Line Maintenance Service Provider, member of Magnetic Group, announced the recent line maintenance support agreement between the company and FedEx Express, world’s largest express transportation company, at Nairobi Airport, Kenya.
The recent agreement is both the first for Direct Maintenance and FedEx Express in Nairobi, and for the Direct Maintenance stations network, primarily focusing on transit checks for the B777 freighter.
“It has been a dream to work with the FedEx team and their support in the set-up phase has been phenomenal. To witness both our local Nairobi team and the FedEx teams working together to ensure a smooth set up has been exceptional, despite some delays we faced as a result of travel restrictions to Africa at the beginning of the year,” shared Victoria Goodenough, Head of Business Development at Direct Maintenance.
Daniel de Dardel, NBO, DAR and JRO Station Manager at Direct Maintenance, added that, “We at Direct Maintenance and the Nairobi station are very pleased to have been chosen by FedEx Express. We are looking forward to a great partnership. In addition, the FedEx team did a marvellous job introducing us to their maintenance system and aircraft handling – we could not be happier to welcome them to Nairobi!”
“Collaborating with new partners and investing in our collective future is how we deliver what’s next. Every relationship – big or small – is important to us, and to the team members who proudly deliver outstanding results”, Managing Director GSP and Direct-Serve Operations; Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, Zaid Khammash.
