Volga-Dnepr Technics Moscow (VDTM) has received the approval of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for the maintenance of Boeing 777-200/-300 aircraft at Sheremetyevo Airport.

Currently, specialists of the Line Maintenance Station (LMS) at Sheremetyevo Airport provide maintenance to three Boeing 777 aircraft of Royal Flight airlines, the Russian carrier operating scheduled and charter international flights to popular tourist destinations from Moscow and more than 25 regions of Russia.

‘We are very pleased to see that our customers’ fleet is expanding and replenishing with new types of aircraft, the maintenance of which they entrust to VDTM,” said Konstantin Surkov, CEO of Volga-Dnepr Technics Moscow.

“Over the past year, we have expanded the scope of services provided to Royal Flight airlines, previously guaranteeing support for Boeing 737NG maintenance, as well as covering component repair. Continuous improvement and expansion of the service range in response to customer requests facilitates our development.“

Earlier this year, VDTM received the approval of the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA) for the maintenance of Boeing 777-200/-300 (GE 90). EASA approval for similar aircraft types will allow the company to cooperate with new customers and provide them with high-quality maintenance services.

“In addition to approval for Boeing 777, we also expanded the EASA certificate for Airbus A320 NEO at our main LMS in Sheremetyevo”, added Surkov.
