THOMS Aviation

THOMS Aviation stands for innovation of exterior and interior aircraft care by utilizing water-based DryWash™ detergents and a flexible workforce.

This way we contribute to durability, unmatched appearance and minimum use of water.

Who we are and what we do

Thomas de Boer (1969) started his career at Avia Presto in air cargo and continued in the ramp and baggage handling for Aviapartner. De-icing was one of his favourite assignments.

THOMS Aviation (established 2013), located at Oude Meer, provides unsurpassed eco-friendly exterior and interior cleaning services that substantially reduce the total cost of ownership. Narrow-body aircraft can be washed on the ramp or at the gate (instead of expensive hangar space) in downtime in less than 5 hours against a water consumption of 25L per aircraft only. THOM’s detergents™ are 100% recyclable, reducing the frequency of exterior treatment to 3-4 times per year.

The same gains can be realized for wide-body aircraft and cockpit cleaning cycles.
