ECONOMYNEXT – State-run SriLankan Airlines said it had inked a deal with aircraft maker Boeing which would lead to maintenance work on aircraft made by the American company.
“The new agreement would enable both parties to explore airframe maintenance, component maintenance, training, and other commercial opportunities,” SriLankan Airlines said.
SriLankan Airlines has a fleet of Airbus aircraft. SriLankan Engineering is certified to perform third party checks and maintenance of Airbus aircraft.
Earlier this month it started converting passenger aircraft to freighters in collaboration with UK based Avensis Aviation.
SriLankan has operated Boeing aircraft in the past including Boeing 737 and 747 aircraft. (Colombo/May20/2021)
