THAI’s Maintenance Centre is ranked as one of the finest in Asia, providing a full range of maintenance services including certified Heavy Maintenance (D-checks) or complete aircraft overhaul. Our reputation has led to such demand for our service, a second Aircraft Maintenance Facility was opened at U-Tapao in May 1999. The new centre can simultaneously conduct service and repair work on three aircraft, and can also carry out the repair of aircraft components and passenger cabin accessories. The new facility was awarded the JAR-145 Certificate by the Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA), an European body which sets and supervises quality control standards in aircraft maintenance to ensure the highest possible standards of service and safety for air passengers. The certificate is only conferred after a maintenance facility has been thoroughly inspected.
