“I believe that the success of Flair Airlines is embedded in the expertise and know-how of the management team,” said Zilvinas Lapinskas, CEO of FL Technics. “Their decisions led to unprecedented growth and I am glad that now our team has been chosen to maintain Flair Airlines operations. I am confident that our experience and resources in the largest independent line maintenance network will grant efficient and precise services in Toronto and Kitchener-Waterloo airports. Furthermore, FL Technics, being part of Avia Solutions Group, creates a whole new range of opportunities to support Flair Airlines in their growth with extensive knowledge within interconnected aviation industry, from ground handling services, to financing and fleet management.”

While being an important achievement to Wright International, this contract also marks the successful stage of development of Flair Airlines business plan in North America. “Toronto and Kitchener are very important cities for Flair, and we look forward to a high level of maintenance support from Wright International and FL Technics teams.“ said Guy Borowski, vice president of maintenance of Flair Airlines.

The deal symbolises the gradual recovery of the industry in North America and worldwide as Wright International and Flair Airlines have established the grounds for strategic long-term operations, and found new ways to operate and partner under uncertain circumstances with COVID-19 related restrictions still in place.
