Srilankan progress in airline engineering

Srilankan Engineering recently carried out two major projects for Airblue, the privately owned Pakistani airline that has been one of its long-time customers.

The back to back projects, the first a C-check on an Airbus A321 which was completed in 7 days, and the second a landing gear change on an A320 that took just 3 days were carried out at the BIA hangar complex recently.

Srilankan Engineering now has an excellent reputation among airlines in the region. Through our superior service, we cultivate long term relationships with our customers, and we are at present in discussions with yet another airline, this time from South Asia, to carry out their maintenance work, said Head of Engineering, D. A. G. Jayasuriya.

Srilankan Engineering has been positioning itself as a Maintenance Repair Organization (MRO) for airlines in the Asian region, and is now an independent revenue/cost center in Srilankan Airlines.

Srilankan Engineering possesses the prestigious industry standard EASA 145 from the European Aviation Safety Agency, in recognition of its commitment to the highest standards of professionalism in aircraft maintenance, as well as recognition by several aviation authorities in Asia.
