Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services commences operation


Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services Co. Ltd officially began its aviation retrofit and maintenance business in Shanghai this March. Boeing Shanghai kicked off operation on March 1st after successfully completing maintenance work on a B737 jetliner of Shanghai Airlines. The B737 aircraft departed from the company’s charted hangar in Shanghai Pudong International Airport after undergoing a complete routine maintenance check (2C Check). It was the first aircraft repaired by the company under the approval of China’s civil aviation authority. The company previously held an inauguration ceremony in January for the construction of a new maintenance facility located beside the hangar of Shanghai Airlines at the Shanghai Pudong International Airport. The construction project of a permanent MRO facility, which will include a hangar and four aircraft parking stands, is now underway. The construction project, which will occupy an area of 11,645 sq. m., is divided into two phases. The new maintenance, repair and overhaul facility of Boeing Shanghai can simultaneously hold two B747 or B777 aircraft once the first phase of the project is fully completed. It could then accommodate four B747 or four B777 aircraft all together once the second stage is finished. The first stage of the project is expected to be ready for operation in April 2009. Based on the company’s plan, the second stage will be completed by the year 2010.
