Lithuanian maintenance provider FL Technics is to become a partner in the OEM aftermarket support programme for the Sukhoi Superjet 100.
The Vilnius-based MRO company inked a tentative agreement with the Russian manufacturer and its Italy-based sales joint venture, SuperJet International, to become an authorised service centre and support customers in Europe and Asia on the airframer's behalf.
The agreement covers both line and base maintenance.
FL Technics, which is also a partner in Boeing's Goldcare aftermarket support programme, says that the Superjet cooperation will begin "in the nearest future" with line maintenance services to operators in Southeast Asia.
Indonesian carrier Sky Aviation received the first of 12 Superjets earlier this year, while Lao Central Airlines also recently took delivery of the first of three aircraft.
