Ameco and Asiana Airlines, longstanding partners, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding by which Ameco will provide Asiana Airlines with MRO services that include line maintenance and release, component repair and V2500 engine overhaul.

The MoU was signed by Bin Teng, general manager of Marketing & Sales of Ameco, and Hojin Kwak, deputy general manager of Maintenance Administration of Asiana Airlines, at MRO Asia-Pacific. Ameco and Asiana Airlines had in June this year signed a five-year contract for engine services, for repair and overhaul for over forty V2500 engines.

Ameco acquired the MRO ability on V2500 in 2015, and has approvals of CAAC, FAA and EASA to conduct overhaul and modification services on this type. The newly upgraded V2500 engine overhaul workshop will be put into use from this November, which can accommodate six engines for disassembly, balance and assembly. The  overhaul capacity will increase by 70%.
