Scaling one more step in the field of aviation the Cochin International Aviation Services Limited, the subsidiary of the Cochin International Airport Limited, has bagged the approval from one of world’s highly reputed authorities in aviation safety technology, the European Aviation Safety Agency.

It was announced in the press release published by airport director A C K Nair on Tuesday.  This will add more sheen to CIASL, which has already won recognitions from major airline repair and safety agencies of worldwide reputation. 

Directorate General of the Civil Aviation, General Civil Aviation Authority, UAE, SriLankan Civil Aviation Authority, Singapore Civil Aviation Authority and Qatar Civil Aviation Authority are the major agencies who had bestowed their faith in the repair services of the CIASL. It is a great recognition for CIAL and its subsidiary CIASL, because, according to the press release, with the approval of the European Aviation Safety Agency, CIASL is getting the licence to repair the aircraft of almost all major airlines of the world.

In other words, it is also getting the recognition to take up the line maintenance and repair of all Airbus aircraft under series of 319, 320 and 321.  It was in last April/May that an audit team of European Aviation Safety Agency from Germany had visited and inspected the facility at CIASL and rendered its approval. As of now CIASL has two conventional hangars with an area of 35,000 sq ft each. In addition to them, it has another extensive apron of 3,25,000 sq ft (used for parking aircraft), taxi link from the runway, run-up bay and an extended workshop as facilities for the new hangars.

A team from the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security of India (BCAS) had visited the CIASL facilities last week, and the procedures for approval are progressing.

CIASL has selected Aerostore as its technical partners and the discussions with them for their support and know-how are also in the final stages.
