Etihad Engineering provides its array of maintenance services to Etihad Airways as well as third party aircraft providers from around the globe. This resilience in operations is supported by the presence of cutting-edge innovation which resulted in the servicing of a total of 356 aircraft in 2019, and more than 1.6 million manhours deployed. This reveals the facility’s vast capability to maintain and repair different types of aircraft, including the servicing of 196 Airbus and 160 Boeing aircraft.

Frederic Dupont (above), vice president technical sales at Etihad Engineering said: “The past year has been truly remarkable for Etihad Engineering as we have expanded many boundaries, from production processes and hangar utilisation, to pioneering industry firsts like the A380 12 year check we completed in less than 100 days.

 “With the support of latest cutting-edge technology and innovation powered by our team of committed top-notch aircraft engineers and mechanics, we continue to focus on delivering a differentiating value to our customers. We strive to strengthen our partnerships with international airlines and key suppliers and continue to expand in 2020 and beyond. We look forward to sharing our story with industry professionals and discussing collaborative efforts at the upcoming MRO Middle East event.”
