Joramco Adds Part-145 Approval for Next-Gen Narrowbodies

The MRO has obtained EASA certifications for Boeing 737 Max and Airbus A320neo aircraft.

Joramco, the Amman-based maintenance and repair provider of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise, has confirmed EASA Part 145 approvals for Boeing 737 Max and Airbus A320neo aircraft.

The latest approvals follow the addition of EASA Part-145 certification for the Boeing 787 in September 2018, covering both the -8 and -9 variants. The green light from the regulator now brings the Jordanian company into line with the European regulator’s standards of design, production, maintenance and operation of aircraft components.

Having offered MRO services for its 737 and A320 predecessors for several years, Joramco has looked to newer variants of the aircraft in the past two years. It introduced maintenance services for the 737 Max in September 2017, and the MRO expects similar services for the A320neo to be up and running by the end of Q2 2019.

Joramco's existing services from its facility near Amman's Queen Alia International Airport include airframe, line maintenance, components, base maintenance, aerospace systems and maintenance management services. 

Firoz Tarapore, CEO of Joramco’s DAE parent company, said in a statement released Monday (Feb. 18) that the addition of the new approvals “marks a significant milestone in Joramco’s transformation journey led by Joramco’s CEO, Jeff Wilkinson,” the former Etihad Airways Engineering CEO who took the reigns at Joramco in 2017.

The new approvals follow another agreement Joramco announced last week at MRO Middle East in Dubai with Satair – covering the supply of consumables and expendables for both Boeing and Airbus aircraft.
