Silk Way Appoints Lufthansa Consulting

SILK WAY TECHNICS (SWT), the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) subsidiary of Azerbaijan cargo operator Silk Way Airlines, has appointed Lufthansa Consulting to provide expertise and advice to assist it with its plans to establish a major MRO facility in Baku.  SWT has already started the planning process by delivering initial drawings for the hangar building which will be to take two aircraft of the size of the Boeing 747-400, a type recently added to the Silk Way Airlines’ fleet.
The company intends to deliver base maintenance as well as heavy maintenance services including C- and D-Checks especially for Western-manufactured aircraft types such as Boeing, Airbus and ATR models.  Under the terms of the deal, Lufthansa Consulting will conduct an on-site review and analysis of the planned facility location and of the established drawings and documentation.  In close co-operation with a dedicated SWT project team, they will also examine the side-shop requirements and offer recommendations in terms of positioning and size.
