SOLOMON Airlines Airbus A320 aircraft is still in the Maintenance Hangar in Singapore.
According to Mr Colin Sigimanu the Manager Commercial for Solomon Airlines Ltd, the C-Check has taken a bit longer than expected basically because they have been waiting on spare parts for one of the engines.
“It is difficult to source the engine parts due to a global shortage but we are hoping to have the aircraft back in service by the end of May,” said Sigimanu.
In the meantime, Sigimanu said Nauru Airlines will continue to operate international schedules on Solomon Airlines’ behalf.
Early this year, it was reported that the down time for this maintenance period was four weeks but on seeing that it has already reached April had raised the query of the maintenance update over the A320 aircraft.
