FL Technics to setup maintenance station at Dubai International Airport


FL Technics, the Lithuania-headquartered MRO provider, will set up a new line maintenance station at Dubai International Airport.

 The station is EASA certified and upon opening from next month, will initially provide services for Airbus A320 family aircraft and Boeing 737 classic and NG variants. From the second half of 2019, the station will add further capabilities to include the A320neo and A330, along with 777 and 787 aircraft types.

 FL Technics says the station will provide services to both UAE-based and overseas airlines with work scopes of up to DY/WY check and defect rectification at the world’s third largest airport.

 The new Dubai location adds to the existing 35 line maintenance stations FL Technics operates around the world. In the past two years, it has added new line stations across the world, including locations in Georgia and Russia.

 It also has plans to expand its base maintenance capabilities, with new facilities set for China and Thailand.

 ZilvinasLapinskas, CEO at FL Technics, which his part of the Avia Solutions Group, says the Middle East region’s growth and Dubai’s location as an aviation hub makes it important for the company to establish a presence there.

 In addition to line and base maintenance, FL Technics also holds capabilities for spare parts and component support, engine repairs, APU and LG management, full aircraft engineering and technical training.
