Finnair has selected SR Technics to perform heavy maintenance checks on two Airbus A320s.
The D-checks, plus painting, are being carried out at SR Technics' Malta facility, which is specialised in narrowbody MRO.
Finland's flag carrier has already dispatched the first of the two aircraft to the Mediterranean nation.
In July 2012, Finnair awarded Mubadala-owned SR Technics a 10-year contract to maintain its CFM International CFM56 engines and provide component support across its Airbus and Embraer fleet.
Flightglobal's Ascend Online database shows that Finnair operates nine A319s, 10 A320s and six A321s, all CFM56-powered. It has five International Aero Engines V2500-powered A321s on order. It also operates four Boeing 757s, eight A330s and seven A340s, and has 11 A350s on firm order. Its aircraft finance arm owns five Embraer 170s - one operated by Aeroméxico, two by Flybe Nordic and two by Kenya Airways - and eight Embraer 190s, all flown by Flybe Nordic, which also has three Finnair-owned ATR 72s in service.
