2Excel Engineering, the UK-based independent Maintenance and Repair Organisation (MRO), has signed a three-year Agreement with easyJet to perform base maintenance and end-of-lease checks on the airline’s fleet of Airbus A320 Series aircraft.

The work will be carried out at 2Excel’s base maintenance facility at Lasham in Hampshire, which boasts a proud 70-year history of engineering excellence and has been reconfigured for today’s new realities. 2Excel has invested heavily in building relevant capabilities and capacity since it took over the business in December 2015. This Agreement further establishes 2Excel as an Airbus MRO and heralds the start of the return on its significant investment in its Airbus base maintenance Approval.

Chris Norton, 2Excel Engineering’s Chief Executive and Accountable Manager, said: ‘easyJet tried us out with three small checks in late 2018 and this contract has grown out of our performance then and the capabilities and strength we have built since.

‘Our focus is to create robust and enduring relationships with operators and owners by being very flexible to their changing requirements and, by redelivering their aircraft on budget, on time and to a very high standard. We’ve accepted the airline’s first four aircraft already and we’re excited about forging a strong, resilient partnership with easyJet for the long term.’

Brendan McConnellogue, easyJet’s Director of Engineering and Maintenance said: ‘We’re delighted to be working with 2Excel Engineering again this year. We started working with the 2Excel’s maintenance team back in 2018 and we’re confident that this new contract will help us deliver a challenging base maintenance programme and continue focusing on cost efficiency, whilst maintaining safety as our number one priority.’
