S7 Technics completes redelivery check for Aeroflot and Rossiya Airlines

S7 Technics’ Mineralnye Vody base completed a redelivery check on an Airbus A320 in October

The aircraft, previously operated by Aeroflot is now ready to continue operations in the fleet of Aeroflot’s subsidiary Rossiya Airlines.

The project included 1С+4С+6Y+12Y heavy сhecks, after which S7 Technics’ paint shop gave the aircraft its new livery using the advanced base coat / clear coat painting system developed by Dutch specialist Akzo Nobel, the world’s leading producer of painting materials.

Under a long-term general contract, Aeroflot has now been working in close cooperation with S7 Technics for more than three years, in an agreement that covers a spectrum of periodic maintenance checks on western-built narrow-body aircraft. The first check on the Russian flagship carrier’s aircraft under this agreement was completed in February 2015 at S7 Technics’ Novosibirsk site. Since then, apart from numerous shop visits to all of S7 Technics’ sites, 11 redelivery checks have been completed at the Mineralnye Vody facility.

“For maintenance service providers, a redelivery check is a serious competence trial. The main challenge of these checks – apart from the standard set of works aimed at the aircraft’s continued airworthiness – requires ensuring that the aircraft and, equally importantly, its documentation, complies fully with the terms of the leasing contract. For this you need certain experience,” comments Igor Panshin, S7 Technics’ deputy general director for planning and sales.

S7 Technics performed its first ever redelivery check five years ago on an aircraft operated by S7 Airlines. Responding to the needs of its partners, the maintenance provider plans to continue developing its redelivery check capabilities in the interests of both airlines and leasing companies.
