KLM UK Engineering has added CASA Part 145 to its list of approvals, enabling it to maintain aircraft registered with Australian operators.
The certification formally began earlier this month for KLM UK Engineering, which services a number of narrowbody aircraft and regional jets.
These include the Boeing 737, Airbus A320, Embraer 170 and 190, Bae146 and Avro RJ and the Fokker 70 and 100 aircraft types, which it services from its hangar in Norwich, U.K.
KLM UK Engineering's currently offers base maintenance, onsite workshop support and runs a technical training college delivering Part 147 programs.
Peter van der Horst, managing director of KLM UK Engineering, said that the CASA approval adds to existing FAA, EASA approvals. “We will continue to offer a competitive rate, high quality product & short turnaround times to this new market,” he said.
“We have a wealth of experience delivering heavy maintenance services and it will enable us to broaden our customer base to new regions.”
