Estonian capacity airline Xfly has opened another European line maintenance station at Stockholm Arlanda Airport and has plans to set up an additional station in Lithuania.

The line maintenance capacity will be used primarily to maintain its own fleet, but Xfly says it is planning to offer the service to other airlines as well in future.

“Our own maintenance capability at Arlanda gives us more freedom and adds flexibility to perform line maintenance on our aircraft, regardless of time or date,” says Xfly's maintenance manager Peeter Soasepp.

Later this year, the company plans to set up an additional station in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. Once operational, this will add to existing stations in Tallinn, Estonia, and Copenhagen and Aarhus both in Denmark.

Xfly was established in 2015 by Estonia’s flag carrier Nordica and provides capacity needs on medium and long-term contracts for other airlines. It operates a fleet of CRJ700/900 and ATR72 aircraft and is in the process of introducing Embraer E195s. Pre-COVID, its fleet numbered more than 20 aircraft.
