Etihad Airways Engineering successfully completed the region’s first heavy maintenance.
LATAM was the launch customer for the B787 Dreamliner in the Americas and selected Etihad Airways Engineering to carry out the first scheduled C-check on its B787 aircraft.
Jeff Wilkinson, Senior Vice President Technical, Etihad Airways, said: “We value the trust that the LATAM Airlines Group has placed in us by selecting Etihad Airways Engineering to perform the C-check on its first B787 aircraft.
“This was also the first C-check carried out in the Middle East region, and provides a strong endorsement of the inherent quality and skill sets of the team involved, and of our dedicated MRO facilities. We remain fully committed to strengthening our relationship with LATAM by meeting and exceeding their expectations.”
The LATAM Aviation Group has a fleet of over 300 aircrafts.
