UK-based aftermarket specialist AerFin has announced a new suite of engine MRO services.

The new offering, called Engine MRO Lite, includes a range of in-house and off-wing engine maintenance services, including quick-turn services, hospital shop repairs and engine transitions centered on CF34-8, CFM56-5, -7 and RB211-524 engine platforms.

The company says the services will be immediately available from its 100,000 sq. facility located in Caerphilly, Wales, where it has capacity to store around 55 engines. 

The announcement follows confirmation of FAA repair station status at Caerphilly earlier this month. One year prior, it gained similar accreditation from EASA, adding to its existing approval from the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority.

Simon Bayliss, AerFin’s director of operations, says the new service will target accelerated customer access to engine maintenance services through its hospital and quick-turn activity, which he says will “enable operators to maximise liquidity of their assets and optimize their fleets readiness.”
