SR Technics announced that it will extend its maintenance capabilities for the new Boeing 787 at its Line Maintenance station in Geneva, Switzerland, effective as of August 1, 2016. The new service includes on-call maintenance, transit checks, daily and weekly checks, cabin inspections and defect rectification.

“We are delighted to extend our capabilities in Geneva”, said Jakob Straub, Head of Line Maintenance International at SR Technics. “This demonstrates our commitment to offering comprehensive solutions that suit the needs of our customers while steadily investing in trainings to expand our service portfolio with new aircraft types."

SR Technics's sole shareholder Mubadala has agreed to sell an 80% stake in the company to HNA Aviation.

Geneva is the second line station after Zurich to introduce the B787 capability within the SR Technics network. SR Technics has more than 40 line maintenance customers in the city and it provides services from assistance to full technical handling. The new capability will supplement the existing local offer, which includes maintenance capabilities for A300 / A310 / A318 / A320fam / A330 / A340 / B737 / B757 / B767 and B777 for line and light maintenance, up to A & P-checks.
