Maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) firm Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services has signed an agreement to perform work on South Korean low-cost carrier Jeju Air's Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

The deal will cover C-checks for two 737-800s operated by Jeju, says the MRO firm.

Jeju is Boeing Shanghai's first South Korean customer, after the MRO company received maintenance certification from the Korea Civil Aviation Safety Authority in February.

"This agreement expands upon earlier maintenance support in which Boeing Shanghai provided a landing-gear exchange for the airline earlier this year," says the MRO company.

Boeing Shanghai is a joint venture between Boeing, Shanghai Airport Authorities and Shanghai Airlines.
