Volga-Dnepr Technics Moscow (VDTM), Russia’s independent maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services provider, has received approval from the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA) to provide line maintenance of the GE90-powered Boeing 777-200/-300 aircraft type.
The certificate authorises line maintenance of these aircraft types of the Bermuda Aircraft Registry at the original VDTM base station located at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport.
“The expansion of BCAA approval to the Boeing 777-200/-300 new types of aircraft for us is another step towards our development and a confirmation of VDTM striving to provide high quality maintenance services,” enthuses Konstantin Surkov, chief executive of Volga-Dnepr Technics Moscow.
“With approval for maintenance of the Boeing 747-400, Boeing 747-8, Boeing 737 NG, Boeing 737 CL, Airbus A319, A320 and the A321 aircraft, we are confident that our customers operating the Boeing 777 will also appreciate the company’s advanced features. We are currently aiming to obtain EASA approval for the Boeing 777 with European registration maintenance and further introduction of new services following industry development trends,” Surkov adds.
VDTM, which is part of the Volga-Dnepr Group, has been active in the MRO market in Russia since 2009, steadily expanding the range of services it provides for Boeing and Airbus aircraft. VDTM has not revealed the names of any potential customers for the new certification status.
Of the total of 33 Bermuda-registered B777s in Russia, the largest operator of the type is flag carrier Aeroflot with 19 in its fleet. Nine B777s are operated by Nordwind Airlines, three by IrAero and two by Azur Air, with two more expected this year.
Last month Volga-Dnepr Technics Moscow has been certified for compliance with the ISO 9001-2015 international standard.
