Azeri MRO specialist Silk Way Technics (a subsidiary of Silk Way Group) is preparing to begin offering services on Boeing 737 MAX narrowbodies. “We are planning to train specialists in the maintenance of the type this year,” the company’s representative told ATO Show Observer, Russian Aviation Insider’s sister publication, without disclosing any details. Silk Way Group ordered 10 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft in April 2017 under a lease contract.
Azerbaijan’s national carrier AZAL earlier confirmed that the airliners would end up in its fleet. The first two airplanes are scheduled for delivery in late 2018; the contract should be completed in 2020. Turkish Cabin Interior (TCI, a joint venture between Turkish Airlines, Turkish Technic, and Turkish Aerospace Industries) is responsible for designing and installing the galleys on AZAL’s MAX 8s.
