Volga-Dnepr Gulf (VD Gulf), Volga-Dnepr Technics Subgroup branch in the Middle East, passed all required procedures to receive EASA approval (European Aviation Safety Agency) to perform maintenance of western-made aircraft at the Sharjah Airport. EASA Part-145 certificate allows to perform the aircraft line maintenance of Boeing 737 CL&NG, Boeing 747-400 and Airbus A320 Family, as well as to provide services in components repair (С4, С5, С8, С14, С20 ratings) and non-destructive check (D1).

This autumn airlines based in Sharjah Airport can become the first customers of MRO services provided by Volga-Dnepr Gulf. The company plans to extend the ratings of EASA / GCAA certificates for Boeing 747 and Boeing 737 NG aircraft up to C-check level of maintenance.

Victor Sherin, Managing Director, Volga-Dnepr Gulf said: “I sincerely congratulate the VD Gulf team on EASA Part-145 certificate. We took appropriate steps to pass this important certification and this document confirms the highest status of our company. Now we face even more important objectives: enter and take over the Middle East MRO market. There are good reasons for that, such as modern maintenance station in Sharjah Airport, the team of highly skilled professionals, optimized processes and partnership relations. I am sure that everything is within our team’s scope of abilities”.
