Boeing Shanghai signs first 777 heavy maintenance contract
Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services has been awarded its first 777 heavy maintenance contract through an agreement with Russia-based Orenair. Boeing Shanghai will perform a C-check on one of Orenair’s 777-200ERs in October 2013. Boeing Shanghai received U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency authorization to conduct 777 maintenance services in 2012. The maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) company has previously completed several cabin reconfigurations and multiple A-checks on 777-300s for other customers.
