| A-Technics, Aeroflot's MRO subsidiary, has just inaugurated a new maintenance hangar at Moscow Sheremetyevo airport.
This new 7,210 m2 facility is capable of accommodating a Boeing 747-400 or a 777-300ER as well as two Superjet 100s simultaneously. It is the heavy maintenance of Aeroflot 20 777-300ERs that is the priority, the Russian company now wishing to repatriate the C-Checks of its Triple Seven fleet internally. They were previously carried out at Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services in China.
Six C-checks of 777-300ER for Aeroflot are thus scheduled this year, as well as two 747-400 heavy maintenance checks for Rossiya (D-Checks), the airline belonging also to the group. These two aircraft are registered in Ireland and A-Technics is therefore aiming for EASA approval before the end of the year.
A-Technics also clarified that it was the only MRO company in Russia and the CIS with unique competencies in performing heavy maintenance of Boeing 747 and Boeing 777 aircraft.
