Base Maintenance
New approval and new customer

On 15 October, a Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 aircraft departed Jinan Yaoqiang International Airport after undergoing a 1C-check at STAECO. The Q400 aircraft belongs to Thai domestic budget carrier Nok Air. The project was the first cooperation between STAECO and Nok Air, and also the first Q400 maintenance check performed under a newly-gained approval from Thailand’s Department of Civil Aviation. 


The STAECO team has invested huge effort into preparing for this check, ensuring on-time redelivery of the aircraft, as well as meeting the requirements of the customer and the authority. Successful completion of this input has laid a solid foundation for further long-term cooperation between the two parties.
