Jo­ramco, the Jor­dan-based en­gi­neer­ing divi­sion of Dubai Aero­space En­ter­prise (DAE), has se­cured EASA Part 145 ap­proval for the Boe­ing 787 air­craft type. The an­nounce­ment fol­lows the com­pany’s ac­qui­si­tion of a sim­i­lar ap­proval for this type from the Jor­da­nian Civil Avi­a­tion Author­ity (JCARC) and the Fed­eral Avi­a­tion Ad­min­is­tra­tion (FAA) in April 2018.

“We are very pleased to gain our EASA ap­proval for the Boe­ing 787. This ap­proval al­lows us to broaden our ser­vice of­fer­ings to a wider base of cus­tomers as we con­tinue to build on Jo­ramco’s suc­cess as a lead­ing MRO fa­cil­ity of­fer­ing a glob­ally com­pet­i­tive suite of MRO ser­vices,” shared Jeff Wilkin­son, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Jo­ramco.

Of­fer­ing a wide range of main­te­nance, re­pair and over­haul (MRO) ser­vices for com­mer­cial air­craft, Jo­ramco’s ex­ten­sive port­fo­lio in­cludes cus­tomers in the Mid­dle East, Europe, South Asia, Africa, Rus­sia and CIS coun­tries.

From its base in the free zone area of Queen Alia In­ter­na­tional Air­port in Am­man-Jor­dan, Jo­ramco’s fa­cil­ity, which com­prises of five hang­ers ca­pa­ble of ac­com­mo­dat­ing up to 15 air­craft, of­fers ser­vices for Air­bus, Boe­ing, and Em­braer fleets.

“The EASA ap­proval for the Boe­ing 787 fur­ther rec­og­nizes Jo­ramco’s ex­tended ca­pa­bil­ity set in main­tain­ing new tech­nol­ogy air­craft,” said Firoz Tara­pore, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of DAE.

“This achieve­ment re­flects DAE’s goal of de­vel­op­ing a re­gion­ally-based world-class com­pet­i­tive MRO and ser­vices plat­form to com­ple­ment its top-tier leas­ing plat­form.”

As one of the largest air­craft leas­ing com­pa­nies in the world, DAE’s leas­ing and en­gi­neer­ing di­vi­sions serve over 125 air­line cus­tomers across the world.

DAE se­cured a ma­jor­ity stake in Jo­ramco back in 2016.
