SriLankan Engineering certifies Singpapore Airlines B787 on Maldives run

ECONOMYNEXT – SriLankan Engineering said it has certified the first Boeing 737 aircraft of Singapore airlines operated to Male Maldives, as part of efforts to expand services.

SriLankan had certified other types of aircraft operated by Singapore airlines to Male earlier.

“This signifies an expansion of our MRO services which are much sought-after in the South Asian region,” Chief Executive Officer, Vipula Gunatilleka said.

“As we strive to maintain the highest industry standards at all times, we anticipate more opportunities to serve third party carriers in the years to come.”

SriLankan engineers who are working in Maldives operations were trained by SIA Aviation Company Training Academy, owned by Singapore Airlines, the firm said.

“We continue to explore potential expansion opportunities through widening the scope of our service portfolio for the benefit of more clients,” Chief Technical Officer, D A G Jayasuriya said.

SriLankan Engineering has certifications for line maintenance, base maintenance and engineering workshops from European aviation regulator and has authorization to certify aircraft operating to Bandaranaike International Airport in Sri Lanka and Malé International Airport in the Maldives.
