Air Works completes its 200th heavy maintenance check

Mumbai: Leading aviation MRO services provider Air Works today said it has successfully completed its 200th base maintenance check, which was performed on a private airline's B737 aircraft at the company's Hosur maintenance facility in Karnataka.
Air Works has 17 aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) hangars across India and other countries.
It provides a range of services including airline and business aircraft MRO, commercial and business aircraft asset management.
With Gurgaon-based airline SpiceJet's Boeing 737 aircraft, bearing registration VT-SLB, rolling out of Air Works' Base Maintenance facility at Hosur mid-last month, the company successfully completed its 200th base maintenance check, a release said.
Base maintenance is also known as heavy or hanger maintenance.
The company's Hosur maintenance facility has the approval from European aviation regulator EASA besides India's Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
"This is a proud and a momentous step for us. We are thankful to SpiceJet for making us their partner of choice in this endeavour," said Air Works Executive Vice President Anand Bhaskar.
