S7 Technics Holding has launched a new line station at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow. The new station will be managed by the MRO provider’s subsidiary S7 Engineering. The location at Sheremetyevo—which is Russia’s biggest airport—is the first line station for S7 Engineering outside of its two main bases at Domodedovo Airport in Moscow and Mineralnye Vody Airport in Stavropol Krai.
“The highly qualified engineering and technical staff of this line station, working in four shifts at Sheremetyevo to provide 24/7 service, is ready to render full support to customers, and is supplied with the complete range of equipment and tools necessary for servicing aircraft on any call within S7 Engineering’s capability list,” says Vladislav Kotenko, S7 Engineering’s line station management director.
The new station is fully approved to provide maintenance, structural repairs and non-destructive testing (NDT) on the Airbus A320 family, Boeing 737NG and Russian-built Sukhoi Superjet 100 regional jets. Kotenko adds that the location will offer round-the-clock logistics support, including a portable store of spare parts and components.
S7 Technics says several Russian charters that base their aircraft at Sheremetyevo will be the new line station’s first customers. The airport currently serves more than 300,000 aircraft movements a year.
