I originally posted this on another forum but feel it may get a wider audience here. As always any comments welcome.
Just out of interest does anyone know what BA plans to do with the BMI Maintenance bases at Heathrow and East Midlands? I did read somewhere that the Heathrow hangar was being rebranded as a BA hangar. I see aircraft are still positioning to EMA for maintenance. I also remember reading that the current contract with a maintenance company in Sofia ends in January 2013 and that some former BMI engineers would then be needed in UK for maintenance work. Is this correct? It may be an idea to keep the EMA base as with an increasing fleet the capacity may be needed.
I know that BA opened a hangar at Prestwick to enable extra capacity for specific work in Airbus aircraft. Are there any plans to keep this going?
