I was a bit confused what an S check is and maybe it was a typo and maybe they meant A check. Searched and found out what it is.
An "S" check is nearly equivalent to a D check but is incorporated with the c-check that would be done at the same time. Only on Airbus.

An S check is a structural inspection check which, depending on aircraft type and age/flight cycles is done anywhere from every 3 to 6 years. It requires the whole aircraft to be stripped down and gutted which is why airlines perform it at the same time as heavy C checks. There are no "D" checks on A330 aircraft.
