Vietnam Airlines’ MRO Division Approved By EASA

VAECO becomes first Vietnamese maintenance provider to gain the approval.

Vietnam Airlines Engineering Company (VAECO), the maintenance subsidiary of Vietnam Airlines, has been granted a Part-145 approval certificate by regulator EASA.

The certification will allow VAECO to conduct maintenance on aircraft registered in Europe, while also permitting airlines and lessors to be able to choose maintenance facilities for their bought or leased jets in Vietnam.

VAECO says the approval makes it the first MRO organization in the country to gain the EASA certification. 

The EASA approval follows an earlier Part-145 authorization awarded to the maintenance provider by U.S. regulator the FAA in 2011.

Duong Tri Thanh – president and CEO of Vietnam Airlines, said the Part-145 contributes to the Asia-Pacific country;s image as “a reliable regional and international aviation market.”

The EASA approval follows an earlier Part-145 authorization awarded to the maintenance provider by U.S. regulator the FAA in 2011.

Tajes Rosa, EASA Inspector, said: “EASA is very happy that the certificate has been delivered to VAECO so fast and that we can start our formal relationship. During the audit we could see that you have already had a very solid organisation in place.”
