FL Technics, a global provider of one-stop-shop aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul services, has announced that its subsidiary – FL Technics Indonesia – had launched Base Maintenance (BM) services in its facilities at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. The first Boeing 737 has already reached the MRO center for a C-Check.
Following the receipt of the Indonesian DGCA’s base maintenance approval earlier in January 2017, FL Technics Indonesia welcomed its first base maintenance customer – Batik Air. The Indonesian carrier’s Boeing 737-800 will undergo a comprehensive set of C-Check works which are due to be finished in early February.
With 35 base maintenance specialists, FL Technics Indonesia provides routine maintenance, flight hours inspection, structure repairs, minor and major modifications, technical defect rectifications and other services. In the nearest future, the company plans to expand its geographical coverage by adding BM approvals from Thai, Cambodian, Malay and Vietnamese aviation authorities.
“We are happy to welcome Batik Air as our first base maintenance customer,” shared Martynas Grigalavicius, CEO of FL Technics Indonesia. “With the help of FL Technics Training, we have developed a strong MRO team which will be providing European-level services in heart of Indonesia. As we receive new approvals and more airlines entrust their aircraft to us, we plan to increase the BM staff to up to 200 members, as well as expand our infrastructure to 15 000 m2. We will also keep further adapting best practices from our European facilities for the benefit of our Asian Pacific customers.”
FL Technics Indonesia’s modern MRO center is located at the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta, Indonesia. The 9000 m2 facility accommodates up to 3 narrow-body airliners at a time. Through its parent company, FL Technics Indonesia is a member of the Avia Solutions Group family – an international, publicly traded aviation holding company with over 20 subsidiaries worldwide.
