J&C Aero, a provider of aircraft cabin services, has gained EASA Part 145 certification and has launched an in-house component repair shop.

The company is based in Dublin but operates its production and MRO facility in Vilnius, Lithuania. Approval was granted by Europe’s regulator last month and J&C will now conduct in-house component maintenance and repairs, covering air conditioning and pressurization, doors and hatches, electrical power and lights, equipment, windows, and structural components from its newly launched facility in Lithuania.

“We’ve started purely as a design company, focusing on the development of various cabin interior elements. Step by step we have been expanding our capabilities by adding production and other services,” says Laurynas Skukauskas, CEO at J&C Aero. “By aiming to become a single point for all aircraft cabin-related needs, adding MRO capabilities is logical next step for us.” 

J&C Aero also has plans to more than double existing its MRO and production facilities in 2022.

Currently operating with a volume of 16,200 sq.ft, the business has cabin interior design, production and print shops capabilities in addition to the new parts repair shop. J&C Aero estimates that by the end of the first quarter of next year, it plans to increase space to 37,700 sq.ft.
