Indian A-320 fleet to undergo major maintenance at Mattala

No-frill carrier IndiGo’s Airbus A-320 fleet will now on undergo major maintenance checks in the hangars of SriLankan Airlines in Hambantota.
An agreement to this effect was signed between SriLankan and IndiGos parent company, InterGlobe Aviation Limited, to enable the Indian carrier’s fleet of 78 A-320s undergo checks by SriLankan’s Engineering Division at the country’s second international airport, Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport (MRIA) in Hambantota, a SriLankan release said. A check is performed every 20 to 24 months or a specific amount of actual flight hours or as defined by the manufacturer.
This extensive check requires a large majority of the components to be inspected in a hangar, thus putting the aircraft out of service for almost two weeks.

The agreement would not only help IndiGo to save a considerable amount by not sending an airplane to Europe for similar checks, but also secure a multi-million dollar revenue for SriLankan over the long duration of the agreement.
