Air India to looks to earn by repairing SpiceJet aircraft

This comes as a result of an MoU signed between the national carrier and SpiceJet in August last year.

Air India will be receiving its third-party order to conduct a C1 check — one of the major checks — from SpiceJet for its aircraft. This check is mandatory. The aircraft will be handed over to SpiceJet in six days.

This comes as a result of an MoU signed between the national carrier and SpiceJet in August last year. This order will not only generate income for India but also aim to decrease its loan. Air India Engineering Services Limited (AIESL) conducted a C check for the first time for Jet Airways, followed by GoAir’s Airbus A320 in November. Every aircraft requires checks divided into A, B, C, C2 and D categories.

A and B checks are considered minor. An aircraft undergoes C1 check after 1,125 days of flying, while C2 check is done after 2,250 days of flying and requires three weeks of repairing, The most rigorous check is under the D category. An aircraft undergoes a D check if it has flown for 3,000 days irrespective of the number of hours.

The airline on Sunday has organised an event marking the beginning of the MRO work with SpiceJet. While the national carrier’s top officials will be part of this handing over event, the chief guest will be chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, who will be accompanied by civil aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju and others.
