In a major boost for the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) segment in the world’s third-largest domestic aviation market, Air Works has received the European Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA) approval for its state-of-the-art twin hangar engineering facility at Cochin International Airport.

The Part 145 Approval from EASA means that India’s largest MRO and aviation services and solutions major will be able to offer full Maintenance Planning Document (MPD) support for the Airbus 320 family of aircraft, including A318, A319, A320 and A321 from a second facility.

This is inclusive of a 120-month inspection for all four engines used on the aircraft PW1100G, CFM 56, Leap-1A and IAE V2500, C-checks, and structural and corrosion inspections. Air Works will also be able to undertake major repairs and modifications for the Airbus 320 family, in addition to end-of-lease-transitions, bridging checks and engine changes.

Managing director & CEO of Air Works Group, D Anand Bhaskar said, “We are excited to enhance our EASA-certified capacity and capabilities which will expand the scale of our operations and support to regional aircraft operators and global lessors.”

Kochi serves as an important hub for leading Middle Eastern carriers. Moreover, Air Works recently expanded its operations to Dubai as part of its strategy to offer its cost-effective workmanship to both international and domestic carriers.
