VD Gulf, a VDT subgroup company and one of the largest independent MRO service providers in the Middle East, announced that it has been awarded a contract to conduct heavy checks on four Boeing 747-400 aircraft operated by Rossiya Airlines.
The heavy checks (C-checks) will be conducted by VD Gulf’s engineers in Sharjah, UAE, at VD Gulf’s ultra-modern hangar facility located adjacent to Sharjah International Airport.
The first of the four Rossiya Airlines aircraft covered by this agreement arrived in Sharjah in late November.
“VD Gulf highly values its long-standing relationship with Rossiya Airlines. This agreement underscores VD Gulf’s sector-leading capability to conduct heavy maintenance checks on Boeing 747 aircraft, and I would like to thank Rossiya Airlines for once again putting their confidence and trust in VD Gulf,” Ayrat Gilmutdinov, VD Gulf’s Director Commercial, said.
VD Gulf is an independent MRO services provider approved by multiple regulatory authorities offering unlimited maintenance services on Boeing 747-400/-8, 777, 737CL/NG, and Airbus A320ceo family/A320ceo family aircraft.
