SriLankan Engineering, the MRO division of SriLankan Airlines, has completed the first C-check on an Airbus A320neo aircraft. The work project on the aeroplane, which is part of SriLankan Airlines fleet, was completed at the carrier’s main hub in Colombo’s Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA).
The C-check maintenance programme, which is performed after 4,000 hours of flight time, was completed on aircraft 4R-ANA, the first A320neo to join the airline’s fleet.
Vipula Gunatilleka, CEO of SriLankan Airlines, said: “The highly dedicated and talented Engineering team worked tirelessly to achieve this milestone and once again has strengthened our position as an MRO in the South Asian region. We look forward to providing MRO and engineering services to our customer airlines as well in the near future.”
To date, SriLankan Engineering holds a number of certifications from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to conduct base maintenance operations on aircraft of the Airbus A320 and A330 families as per EASA Part-145 specifications.
Additionally, the company is authorised to offer line maintenance and engineering workshops, as well as carry out EASA certified training.
D.A.G. Jayasuriya, CTO of SriLankan Airlines said: “Our team of experienced aircraft engineers proved its capabilities once again with this excellent performance. The on-time completion within the planned four day period ending on 5th February ensured that the aircraft was back in service with the fleet within a very short time.”
