Aeroflot selects Boeing Shanghai to perform C-check on its Boeing 777s
Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services (Boeing Shanghai) has undertaken to perform C-checks on Russian flag carrier Aeroflot’s four Boeing 777-300ER widebody airliners. The works are expected to take place at Shanghai’s Pudong Airport during the first quarter of 2016.
Aeroflot’s 777-300ERs are relatively new, so have never undergone a C-check before, a Boeing representative explained. Until now, Boeing Shanghai has been performing only A-checks on these airliners. Its 100th A-check on an Aeroflot Boeing 777 was performed in July 2015.
Boeing Shanghai and Aeroflot have been collaborating since 2010. Apart from the 777s, the US-Chinese company has serviced Aeroflot’s Boeing 767 widebodies, including C-checks (the carrier stopped operating these aircraft in 2014).
Boeing Shanghai started performing C-checks of Boeing 777s in 2013. OrenAir, a subsidiary of Aeroflot Group, became the launch customer for this service with one Boeing 777-200ER.
Boeing Shanghai’s other Russian clients are Rossiya, UTair, NordWind, Pegas Fly, and S7. Transaero Airlines, now defunct, also used to be a customer.
