SriLankan Engineering achieved yet another milestone in its quest to become an aircraft maintenance organisation of choice in the region when it was contracted to dismantle an entire Airbus A320 aircraft that is being taken apart by its owner, at end of lease with SriLankan.
The project for AAR Corporation, a company based in the United States that owns and leases aircraft to airlines around the world, is the first aircraft dismantling programme undertaken by SriLankan Engineering.
The project involves separating all of the thousands of usable parts and systems on the aircraft, packing them, and shipping them to the owning company. The work was carried out over just six weeks. The parts will be used as spares for other aircraft.
