FL Technics to add Airbus A330 to capability list
FL Technics, a global provider of tailor-made aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul services, continues to expand the scope of its activities in the global market. Following the expansion of its total hangar capacity to over 30.000 m², the company‘s management has confirmed plans to introduce Airbus A330 aircraft type to its EASA Part 145 certificate. The certification is expected to be carried out by summer 2016. This year FL Technics has successfully launched a new 8.500 m² MRO centre at Kaunas International Airport and won a tender for the rent of 9. 000 m² aircraft maintenance hangar at Indonesia’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. Moreover, together with its holding company Avia Solutions Group, it is participating in the projects of developing a 25.000 m² aviation cluster in Lithuania and the fourth airport in Moscow – Ramenskoye International. Upon the successful implementation of the aforementioned projects the company will be able to further increase the number of performed heavy maintenance works within the next couple of years. Currently, the FL Technics base maintenance capabilities already cover such popular narrow-body aircraft as Airbus A319/A320/A321, Boeing 737 CL and Boeing 737 NG. Having added sufficient aircraft capacity to service large wide-body machines, the company has decided to expand its capabilities and enter the perspective segment, as there are almost 150 Airbus A330 aircraft operated in Europe alone.
