SriLankan Engineering notched up another achievement to its impressive list with the recent completion of a C Check for customer airline, SalamAir. SriLankan Engineering has been resolute in building strategic partnerships and acquiring Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) projects from other airlines since 2020, bringing in much-needed foreign currency to the airline and country alike.
The heavy maintenance C check was performed on a SalamAir A320neo aircraft at SriLankan Engineering’s dedicated European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approved A320 hangar, as part of a series of C checks that have been awarded to SriLankan Engineering. Contracts for heavy maintenance have proven profitable for the airline. Further, the revenue earned from such MRO projects is typically in foreign currency and thus generates foreign currency for the airline and country at this critical time.
Over the years, SriLankan Engineering has etched a solid track record for providing high-quality MRO services. Having the necessary human and technical resources; the airline’s hub strategically located in the Indian Ocean, and necessary international certifications and approvals have given the impetus to secure new high-value contracts from the region and beyond. This includes the signing of five new contracts with other airlines and leasing companies in Asia and the Middle East to provide services to aircraft MRO activities in the past 12 months.
