Etihad Airways Engineering has signed an agreement with Kenya Airways to perform the mandatory checks on its Boeing 787-8 fleet. This is part of an integration programme for the newest additions to the airline’s fleet.
The first of six scheduled Boeing 787 C-checks begins this month, with the last one planned for October 2017. The airline is also planning a number of product and reliability improvement modifications to systems and components during these heavy maintenance checks.
Etihad Airways Engineering Chief Executive Officer Jeff Wilkinson said, “We are pleased to support Kenya Airways in optimising its fleet performance and building its technical know-how through our expanding Boeing 787 heavy maintenance capabilities.”
Kenya Airways Technical Director Martyn Haines said, “We will use this opportunity to upscale and retool some of our technical department, who will be onsite to provide oversight of all work being done. The agreement also opens up other collaborative opportunities including training programmes.
“We have an ongoing maintenance programme of small and large checks across our other fleets, with all of these scheduled for completion within our maintenance facility.”
