EASA extends Part 145 certification of SriLankan Engineering

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, December 05, 2019:   The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has extended an important certification of SriLankan Engineering, the aircraft Maintenance-Repair-Overhaul (MRO) arm of SriLankan Airlines, following a comprehensive audit. The reaffirmation of the EASA Part-145 certification further strengthens SriLankan Engineering’s positioning as a key provider of aircraft maintenance and engineering services for airlines throughout South Asia, Middle East and Africa. 

Vipula Gunatilleka, Group Chief Executive Officer of SriLankan Airlines, said: “SriLankan Engineering is now poised to launch itself as an MRO of choice, with our superior engineering expertise of over 40 years, and modern hangar complex and workshops that have been certified to the finest global standards.”

D.A.G. Jayasuriya, Chief Technical Officer of SriLankan Airlines, said: “SriLankan invested significantly in modernizing our aircraft engineering facilities over the last two years and we are confident that we can serve the needs of all airlines in the region, especially given our strategic geographic location at the tip of South Asia and at the crossroads of the Subcontinent, Middle East and South East Asia.”

Arjuna Kapugeekiyana, Senior Manager Aircraft Maintenance of the airline, added: “The reaffirmation of the EASA approval demonstrates the quality of our services and adherence to highest standards. I am grateful to all of our committed and enthusiastic team at all levels whose efforts made this a reality.”

SriLankan Engineering provides customer airlines with several key advantages including an excellent record of on-time project completion; competitive rates; superior expertise of its engineering staff; and modern engineering facilities including enclosed hangars where aircraft can be worked on at any time of the year without being adversely affected by the challenges of bad weather. Its facilities include a dedicated narrow-body hangar capable of servicing Airbus A320 family aircraft and a larger hangar that can accommodate several widebody and narrowbody aircraft at the same time. Both hangars are utilized for major aircraft maintenance checks up to and including C-checks and other significant projects, 

SriLankan Engineering (https://www.srilankan.com/mro/) now possesses EASA Part-145 certification to carry out Base Maintenance operations on Airbus A320, A321 and A330 families of aircraft of all airlines. It also possesses EASA certifications for its Engineering Workshops as well as Line Maintenance and authorization for certification of aircraft operating to Colombo Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) and Male International Airport. The latest extension of EASA Part-145 certification followed a comprehensive six-day audit by a team from EASA of SriLankan Engineering’s facilities at BIA and in the Maldivian capital Male.

The technical arm of Sri Lanka’s national carrier also holds approvals from numerous national aviation authorities including Singapore, China, India, Qatar, UAE and Bahrain, apart from Civil Aviation Authority Sri Lanka (CAASL) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). It provides full engineering services for the entire SriLankan Airlines fleet, which is comprised of A320 Family (CEO and NEO types) and A330 aircraft.

SriLankan Engineering also draws upon the support of a very strong engineering training institution. SriLankan Aviation College (SLAC), the training wing of Sri Lanka’s national carrier, has held EASA Part-147 certification since 2008, emphasizing its position as the premier regional institute for training of aircraft technicians and engineers.
