Lufthansa Consulting supports Air Asia Company Limited to achieve EASA PART-145 standards

Lufthansa Consulting is helping Air Asia Company Limited (AACL) with its preparations for the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification in compliance with Part-145 requirements and is also assisting the company in planning the next steps for process implementation. AACL is continuously endeavoring to increase its capabilities and its range of products. In its attempts to become a significant player in the steadily growing commercial MRO market in the Asia-Pacific region, Air Asia Company Limited aims to acquire certification in 2018.

Lufthansa Consulting performed a gap analysis so as to identify the measures that AACL has to implement in order to gain certification, and also verified the documentation. The consulting experts conducted workshops and interviews with the relevant process-owners and reviewed the company’s process landscape. The result was the submission of a detailed implementation plan. 

Air Asia Company Limited was established in 1955 and was the first privately owned aircraft maintenance company in Taiwan. AACL is a subsidiary of Taiwan Aerospace Corporation and provides professional aircraft Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services. Its capabilities include services for A320 and B737 aircraft as well as for military airplanes.
