CHEP Aerospace Solutions, which provides ULD management and MRO services to airlines, has received certification from both the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for the maintenance and repair of aviation equipment.
Several airports in the United States and in Europe have been approved for CHEP stations including Dallas-Ft. Worth, Newark, Dulles International, Houston, New York- JFK, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Brussels, Nottingham, London-Gatwick, London-Heathrow and Manchester Airport. Further stations will be added soon.
The dual certification enables airlines to save on fuel costs and reduce their carbon footprint by repairing their containers, pallets and galley carts where they were damaged, while complying with the airworthiness approval requirements of each country’s aviation authorities. CHEP’s network also ensures that its 30-plus ULD management customers have fast access to containers and pallets, which have been repaired according to quality standards.
CHEP plans to open a new MRO facility in Dubai, in addition to its existing repair station in Doha, to repair ULDs and galley carts.
