SHANGHAI, May 6, 2014 – Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services Co., Ltd., (Boeing Shanghai) has announced that Jeju Air and Boeing Shanghai have signed a maintenance agreement covering one lease return check and four C-checks for Jeju Air’s Boeing 737-800s.
Jeju Air and Boeing Shanghai’s cooperation can be traced back to January 2010. By the end of 2014, Boeing Shanghai will have completed 12 C-checks and one lease return check for the airline’s 737-800 fleet.
A C-check is an extensive check of the airplane's systems and components, generally requiring several days. Lease return checks are done to ensure that an airplane has been properly maintained, with all necessary documentation, so that at the end of the lease, the airplane is returned in safe and serviceable condition to its owner.
“This win is a testament to the high-quality maintenance service our customers receive and we are grateful for the confidence Jeju Air has placed in our team,” said Dermot Swan, CEO of Boeing Shanghai. “We will continue our commitment to supporting the airline’s safe and efficient operation and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership with Jeju Air.”
Established in 2005, Jeju Air is based in Jeju City, South Korea, and offers scheduled services from Jeju Island to the Korean mainland and several international destinations. Currently the airline operates 15 Boeing 737-800s.
Boeing Shanghai is a joint venture between Boeing, Shanghai Airport Authorities and China Eastern Airlines. Boeing Shanghai offers a broad range of services from engineering, aircraft maintenance and modification to material management and component repair and overhaul, providing the Boeing Edge to customers throughout the world.
