FL Technics, a global provider of tailor-made aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul services, is further expanding its cooperation with CIS carries by signing a new base maintenance agreement with a Russian carrier Yamal Airlines. Under the agreement, FL Technics will support the carrier’s Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 aircraft in its MRO hangars, located in Vilnius and Kaunas, Lithuania.
At the moment Yamal Airlines operates a fleet of over 25 narrow-body and regional aircraft. According to the latest agreement, FL Technics specialists will provide comprehensive MRO support for the carrier’s Airbus A320s and Boeing 737s. The scope of works includes but is not limited to C- and D-checks, NDT and borescope inspections, technical defect rectification, structure inspection and repairs, spare parts supply, etc. All the works will be conducted at FL Technics’ hangars at Vilnius (VNO) and Kaunas (KUN) international airports during 2015.
“Following the launch of our latest 8500 sq. m. MRO facilities in Kaunas earlier this year, we are now able to offer a wider range of base maintenance services for operators from both Europe and the CIS. We are certainly glad that Yamal Airlines has awarded us with yet another year of trust, and we hope to see more carriers at our hangars along further expansion of our capacities and capabilities,” comments Zilvinas Lapinskas, the CEO of FL Technics.
With hubs in Salekhard (SLY), Roshchino (TJM) and Domodedovo (DME) airports, Yamal Airlines operates Airbus A320-200, Boeing 737-400/500, Bombardier CRJ 200, Challenger 850 and Let L-410 aircraft, flying to over 40 domestic and international destinations.
