“We greatly value this milestone agreement with TAP Air Portugal signifying an expansion of our customer base in the European market with one of the continent’s fastest growing airlines. This agreement is testament to the quality delivered by our workforce and we’re thrilled that renowned European airlines, such as TAP Air Portugal, are confident in Abu Dhabi service providers for their MRO requirements,” said Mansoor Janahi, Acting CEO at TS&S.
