Eastman Turbo Oil 2380™brings stability in harsh operating environment.
Widerøe is the largest regional airline in Scandinavia. For more than 80 years, Widerøe has been operating throughout the Arctic Circle to provide it's customers with service to more than twice as many airports in NOrway than any other airline. Operating from Bodø, Norway, the airline's fleet consists of 41 Bombardier Dash 8 turboprop aircraft, all of which must operate in conditions well north of home base and often to remote locations. These locations in the Arctic Circle can produce some of the harshest operating conditions for all types of aircraft. Due to the dangerously cold temperatures and a constant threat of ice, the performance reliability of the aircraft may be more vital in this region than any other.
Widerøe turned to Eastman Turbo Oil 2380 for its superior low-temperature characteristics, load-carrying capability, cleanliness, and elastomer compatibility to keep its aircraft running at the highest performance level possible.
"We operate one of the most experienced PW100/PW150 fleets in the world" said Kjell Litangen, engineering manager, Widerøe. "Coupled with harsh conditions we operate in every day, we have to be constantly focused on the performance reliability of our aircraft."
