KF Aerospace announced it has signed a contract with Canada’s third largest airline, Air Transat. KF will be providing heavy maintenance and modifications on the Montreal-based airline’s fleet of aircraft, including the A321, B737NG, and A330 wide-body.
KF has already invested in the staffing and tooling capability at its YHM Hamilton base to support the unique needs of the A321, the A330 will follow in 2020. The first aircraft was inducted for service at KF earlier this fall, and in November they were the first customer into KF’s newly expanded facility.
“We’re excited to welcome Air Transat on board our legacy of cross-Canada maintenance and repair services,” said KF president, Tracy Medve. “Supported by our robust operational growth at YHM, we’re committed to providing each of our customers with the highest caliber of service in the industry.”
Named World’s Best Leisure Airline in 2019 by Skytrax, Air Transat provides service to 65 destinations around the globe. KF has thanked the Hamilton International Airport for its support of the project and the domestic and global connectivity it brings to the Greater Hamilton Area.
