Posted 4 February 2016 · Add Comment

Volga-Dnepr Gulf, a division of Volga-Dnepr Technics, the Middle East aircraft MRO branch of Russia's Volga-Dnepr Group, has received EASA (Part 145) approval for C check inspections and maintenance and has completed the first C-check maintenance service for a B737-300 operated by Kyrgyzstan-based Avia Traffic Company, at its hangar facility in Sharjah.

According to Victor Sherin, Volga-Dnepr Gulf Managing Director, “The first C-check was successfully done and is a new phase in development of both our company and overall for Volga-Dnepr Technics. We highly appreciate the confidence of Avia Traffic Company and rest assured that this cooperation will be beneficial for both parties. I am sure that our mutual work will grow into a long-term and fruitful cooperation.”

The company, which this year marks its 20th anniversary of business in the UAE and which operates a new 22,000 square metre modern MRO hangar facility at Sharjah Airport, says it is now actively pursuing business from operators within a five hour flying time of the Emirates and is looking to expand its approvals ratings. “We are going for Boeing 747-8 approval and are looking to become a one-stop-shop for airlines,” said Viktoria Grokhovskaya, the company’s Marketing Executive.

At its Sharjah base, Volga-Dnepre Gulf provides aircraft maintenance and repair services in hangars capable of accommodating six narrow-body aircraft simultaneously or two wide-bodies. The maintenance facility, with an international staffing complement of 250, features fully equipped areas for structural and wheel repair. The company also operates a line maintenance station in Fujairah providing MRO services for AN-124-100, AN-74, and IL-76ТD aircraft.
