SriLankan Engineering will be providing line maintenance to Singapore Airlines’ Boeing 787-10s that operate to Male in the Maldives.
This also marks the MRO unit’s first time performing maintenance on a 787.
SriLankan Engineering has a maintenance base at Male and has provided similar services to SIA’s Airbus aircraft that operates to the city.
Two batches of engineers trained with SIA’s MRO training arm for three months before being authorised to undertake third-party maintenance for the 787s.
SriLankan Engineering states that it now has four engineers in its Maldives unit that can work on the Boeing aircraft.
Cirium’s schedules data indicates that SIA operates daily flights from Singapore to Male with 787s.
