SriLankan Airlines’ MRO unit SriLankan Engineering has received European Aviation Safety Agency Part-145 approval to complete base maintenance on Airbus A330s.
It follows the MRO gaining EASA approval for maintenance on A320 family aircraft earlier in the year, which now gives it coverage over all aircraft in the SriLankan Airlines fleet.
“We possessed these certifications for many years, but took a decision to voluntarily suspend the certifications while we carried out our upgrading programme, as it required the full attention of our staff and involved construction activities in some of our hangar facilities that restricted their availability for aircraft related work,” explains SriLankan Airlines chief technical officer D.A.G Jayasuriya.
In addition to working on SriLankan’s fleet, Flight Dashboard data shows that SriLankan Engineering conducts C-checks on A320s for IndiGo.
