Nose to tail C checks and modifications on Boeing 777 from the Emirates fleet
Joramco, the Amman-based maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) provider and the engineering arm of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE), recently signed a new maintenance deal with Emirates, one of the top 10 global airlines and the largest Boeing 777 fleet operator in the world. Under the agreement, Joramco will perform nose to tail C checks and modifications on Boeing 777 aircraft from the Emirates fleet. This latest collaboration will commence in March, and will continue until June of next year.
Up to 4 weeks of work per aircraft
The C check is performed approximately every 20–24 months, or a specific number of actual flight hours (FH), or as defined by the manufacturer. This maintenance check is much more extensive than the B check, requiring a large majority of the aircraft's components to be inspected. This check puts the aircraft out of service for 1–4 weeks. The effort needed to complete a C check is up to 6,000 man-hours.
Agreement further reaffirms capabilities as a reliable and experienced MRO
Commenting on the deal, Joramco’s Chief Executive Officer, Fraser Currie, said, “We are delighted that Emirates has entrusted Joramco to maintain their B777 aircraft. This latest agreement further reaffirms our capabilities as a reliable and experienced MRO that provides services at the highest of standards. With our commitment to providing high-quality services and delivering premium customer service, we are positive that this opportunity is only the beginning of a fruitful and long-term journey together”’
