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.

“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,” said Vip­ula Gu­natilleka, CEO of SriLankan Air­lines.

To date, SriLankan En­gi­neer­ing holds a num­ber of cer tifi­ca­tions 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.

“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,” said D.A.G. Jaya­suriya, CTO of SriLankan Air­lines.
