Posted 29 June 2017 · Add Comment

Monarch Aircraft Engineering Limited (MAEL), the engineering division of Monarch, has gained approval to add the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft to its MRO capability.



David Doherty, Head of Commercial at Monarch Aircraft Engineering, said: "Adding the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft to our Part 145 certificate is not only strategic to our relationship with Boeing but expands our airframe capabilities and shows our commitment to support third party customers operating the next generation of aircraft."

The new aircraft type has been added to the EASA Part 145 approval, allowing MAEL to provide line maintenance support for the Boeing 737 MAX 8.

Initial services will be offered at Edinburgh Airport, supporting operators as part of the Boeing Global Fleet Care Programme, formerly known as GoldCare.

At the Paris Air Show last week, Boeing and Monarch announced an order for 15 additional Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, a Global Fleet Care service agreement and an MRO supply agreement.
