The airline’s senior vice president of technical operations, Andris Vaivads said: “We are improving our maintenance capabilities, and plan to perform C checks on the Airbus A220-300 by the end of the year ourselves. In addition, we already perform line maintenance and A checks on all of our aircraft.”
