Ameco puts tail dock for airframes at 4-bay hangar into service
The first tail dock at Ameco’s four-bay hangar was put into service on October 14th. Now 4 stations can provide airframe overhaul with tail dock, for Boeing 747-400, 747-8, 767,777,787, A330 and A340. One Lufthansa Boeing 747 came to Ameco for D check at the same day when the first tail dock was put into service. From this October to next March, 6 Boeing 747s from Lufthansa will be layover at Ameco Beijing for D checks. In 2014 Ameco signed contracts with ACT Airlines and Air Atlanta Icelandic for Boeing 747 C-checks, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines for Boeing 747 D-check, and Austrian Airlines for 6 aircraft C-checks, including 4 Boeing 767s and 2 Boeing 777s. Ameco started to build A330 capabilities since 2012. It already performed four C-checks on 14 A330s from Air China in three years and one A330 from some 3rd-party customer.
