Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft of Aeroflot underwent a maintenance session in Engineering – the Aviation Maintenance Holding Novosibirsk hangar. C-checks for the first two aircraft have been completed in February and March 2015, respectively.
As a result of a long-term (four years) agreement between Holding Engineering and Aeroflot, the MRO provider will offer maintenance and repair for a part of Aeroflot’s B737 NG and A320 fleet
Placement of a consolidated maintenance order from Aeroflot Group allowed both parties to benefit from economy of scale and carry out maintenance at an efficient price, as well as to ensure accuracy of maintenance planning.
“Holding Engineering took part in the tender or Aeroflot’s fleet maintenance contract and was selected as the preferable provider. Underrwiting a long-term contract between a major Russian airline and Holding Engineering – a major Russian MRO provider is an important step in development and consolidation of Russian aircraft maintenance sector which affirms the compliance of our company’s services to high standards and requirements of Aeroflot, and, in general, Russian MRO’s growingcapability to compete with foreign competitors”, states Igor Panshin, deputy CEO of Holding Engineering.
