Etihad Airways Engineering to offer MRO services to VIP aviation market worldwide

Posted 29 May 2017 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways Engineering has announced that it will extend its industry leading aircraft maintenance and engineering services to VIP aircraft.

As a part of the Etihad Aviation Group and the airline MRO of Etihad Airways, Etihad Airways Engineering continues to expand a formidable capability to design, certify, install and maintain the finest cabins in the sky for Etihad Airways, its equity partners and third-party customers around the world.

Strategically located in one of the most prominent hubs of VIP operators, Etihad Airways Engineering has developed a strong capability to offer VIP operators value-added heavy maintenance services along with full cabin removal, refurbishment and reinstallation.

The company is currently carrying out heavy maintenance on a VIP Airbus A320 aircraft project in collaboration with French cabin interior specialist Aircraft Interior Products (AIP), a Finaero company, and its newly Dubai based entity AIP-Greenline, Aviation Interiors. More VIP aircraft projects are on the cards in the coming months.

Jeff Wilkinson, chief executive officer, Etihad Airways Engineering, said: “We will leverage our long-standing experience in maintenance, repair and overhaul of aircraft from the Airbus A300 to the latest platforms like the A380 and the Boeing 787, along with our expertise and exponentially growing cabin capability to perform heavy checks for Airbus Corporate Jets and Boeing Business Jets.

“We already maintain the entire fleet of Etihad Airways, an airline known for the highest cabin standards. Now, our industry leading aircraft maintenance and engineering solutions, which we offer to commercial, cargo, charter, low-cost and leisure operators, are being extended to corporate and VIP operators. Our intent is not to become a VIP completion centre, but the one-stop destination for heavy checks for VIP aircraft in the region and beyond,” he added.
