Aalberts surface technologies’s Director of Sales & Marketing, Sara McMurray, and Business Development Specialist, Jessica Parrish, attended the Aerospace Industry Association of Michigan (AIAM) Aerospace Industry Luncheon at Spirit Airlines at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
The group was able to walk through a brand-new Airbus A320neo that Spirit brought into service this week, tour the maintenance hangar, and listen to airline executives and industry experts discuss the history of the airline, Covid-19 impacts on the return of commercial flights, the rigorous requirements to maintain their fleet, and how they bring new planes into service.
