Vietnam Airlines Engineering receives EASA Part-145 approval


Vietnam Airlines Engineering Company (VAECO), an MRO company subsidiary of Vietnam Airlines, has announced EASA Part-145 Approval Certificate of Aircraft Maintenance Organisation issued by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

According to the MRO company, the maintenance organisations posessing the EASA part-145 approval certificate are allowed to provide maintenance, overhaul and commissioning services for aircrafts with European registration. In addition, this is also a necessary condition regarding experience and capacity for airlines or organisations that purchase or lease aircraft to be able to choose maintenance facilities in Vietnam.

VAECO is the first and only aircraft maintenance organisation in Vietnam that received the most two prestigious certificates of aviation safety, which are FAR part-145 (by the US Federal Aviation Administration - FAA) and EASA part-145 certificates.

“With CAAV, FAR part-145 and other certificates approved by 20 aviation authorities around the world, the EASA part-145 marked the development and integration of VAECO, meeting all demanding requirements on international aviation safety in the field of aircraft maintenance, thus contributing to the image of Vietnam as a reliable regional and international aviation market”, said Duong Tri Thanh – President & CEO of Vietnam Airlines.

“EASA is very happy that the certificate has been delivered to VAECO so fast and that we can start our “formal relationship”, and very confident that our next years together will be very successful. During the audit we could see that you have already had a very solid organisation in place,” said Tajes Rosa – EASA Inspector.
