SriLankan Engineering, the engineering and maintenance division of flagship carrier SriLankan Airlines, will be providing line maintenance to Singapore Airlines’ Boeing 787-10s that operate to Male in the Maldives.

SriLankan Engineering has provided similar services to SIA’s Airbus aircraft that operates to the city and has a maintenance base at Male.

Two batches of engineers trained with SIA’s MRO training arm for three months before being authorised to undertake third-party maintenance for the aircrafts. SriLankan Engineering states that it now has four engineers in its Maldives unit that can work on the Boeing aircraft.

“Having served our parent airline, SriLankan Airlines, and countless other Middle and Far Eastern operators, we understand first-hand our customers’ requirements for high quality work” claims a spokesperson.

This also marks the first time the MRO unit’s performing maintenance on a 787.
