By Rachel Debling

Etihad Airways Engineering, a subsidiary of Etihad Aviation Group, will be performing A-checks on some of Kenya Airways’ 787 and 737 aircraft after landing a maintenance contract with the carrier.

Etihad completed C-checks for the airline last year; the official announcement was made during MRO Middle East, currently being held in Dubai on January 23 and 24.

“We are pleased to welcome Kenya Airways back to our facility in Abu Dhabi,” Abdul Khaliq Saeed, Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Airways Engineering, said in a January 23 release following the revelation. “An increasing number of airlines from around the world, including flag carriers, are taking advantage of the value proposition and extensive range of maintenance, repair and overhaul services we offer at Etihad Airways Engineering. We are committed to building on our expertise as a Centre of Excellence for modern platforms like the Boeing 787 and the Airbus A380.”
