Fokker Services Asia, a subsidiary of Fokker Services Group (FSG) has obtained Part 145 Maintenance Organization Approval from the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).
The certification means FSG will be able to conduct a wide range of heavy maintenance, base maintenance, and lease transition services on Embraer 190 aircraft registered in Australia at their Seletar Airport facilities in Singapore.
FSG says being awarded the certification puts them in a unique position to provide comprehensive support to customers in Australia – not only for Fokker and ATR aircraft – but now also for Embraer aircraft.
Moreover, it represents an opportunity to establish a brand-new service line for Embraer operators in Asia Pacific, as the E-Jet Family of aircraft expand within the region.
Thomas Kennedy, managing director of Fokker Services Asia (Singapore), said: “Obtaining the new (E190 Family) aircraft capability represents a great milestone in our company.
“We are thankful to all our business partners for supporting the efforts to develop this capability on-time and on-target.
“This is a reflection our team’s high-level of engineering expertise at the core. It also confirms our commitment to Alliance Airlines as a long-term business partner in supporting their fleets and our shared growth and success in the Australia region.”
Scott McMillan, managing director of Alliance Airlines, said: “FSG’s unwavering commitment in securing this certification is commendable.
“We certainly are appreciative that FSG now has the capability to support our Fokker fleet as well as our fleet of Embraer 190 Series aircraft.
“We’re excited about the possibilities ahead for both of our organisations.”
Alliance Airlines is Australasia’s leading provider of contract, charter and allied aviation services, and currently employs more than 1,300 staff.
The airline provides essential services to mining, energy, and government sectors as well as wet lease services for other airlines.
Alliance Airlines currently owns 70 jet aircraft with another 30 being delivered between September 2023 and January 2026.
