Mongolia’s MIAT Technics gains approval to service Russian-registered aircraft
Mongolia’s state-owned national carrier MIAT Mongolian Airlines has won approval to provide aircraft line and base maintenance services on aircraft listed on the Russian register, according to Russian aviation authority Rosaviatsiya.
The FAP-285 award entitles the airline’s MIAT Technics maintenance and engineering arm to offer line and base maintenance services on the Boeing 737NG, Boeing 767-200/300 and Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft types, and also on the Antonov An-2 and its the upgraded and re-engined TVS-2MS light utility aircraft version. The company is also approved for the servicing and repair of a number of aircraft components and also for non-destructive testing.
The fact that the Mongolian maintenance company sought Russian approval signifies it is possibly gearing up for Russian airline customers transferring some of their fleets that are currently mostly on the Bermuda and Irish registers, onto the national register.
MIAT has added several new Russian customers to its portfolio in the past year. In late 2018 the Ulan-Bator-based facility performed a C-check on a Boeing 767 operated by Russian charter carrier Royal Flight. Earlier this year it re-delivered a Boeing 737-800 to Yakutia Airlines after a C-check, and it has also enjoyed a successful cooperation with Russian carriers Utair and Alrosa. MIAT Technics’ technical director Ayush Tuvd previously advised Russian Aviation Insider that the service provider’s work with Utair has extended into 2019. Furthermore, MIAT Technics helped Alrosa set up a line maintenance station at Sanya in China.
MIAT Technics’ facility at Mongolia’s Ulan-Bator capital city airport is capable of simultaneously servicing one wide-body and two narrow-body aircraft in two hangars. Its annual capacity is about 30 aircraft.
