SHANGHAI, Jan. 25, 2011 – Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services Co., Ltd. (Boeing Shanghai) has signed agreements with Russia-based S7 Airlines and with World Airways to perform aircraft maintenance at Pudong International Airport in Shanghai.

Boeing Shanghai will perform heavy maintenance on Boeing 767s operated by S7 under a two-year agreement, and will perform A-check maintenance on World Airways’ Boeing 747-400 airplanes. The duration of the World Airways agreement is not being disclosed.

“By signing these agreements, Boeing Shanghai will provide World Airways and Russian S7 Airlines with cost-efficient, comprehensive aircraft maintenance service,” said Bernard Hensey, Boeing Shanghai CEO. “We are looking forward to long-term business relationships with these important carriers as their aircraft maintenance service provider.”

Earlier in January, Boeing Shanghai completed its first 747-400 A-check for World Airways. Also, the first 767 from S7 was inducted at the Boeing Shanghai facility in January.

During 2010, Boeing Shanghai also entered maintenance agreements with Aeroflot Russian Airlines, GE Capital Aviation Services, Business Air and Jeju Air. The facility holds maintenance certifications from airworthiness authorities in the United States, Europe, Korea, Thailand, Bangladesh and Bermuda.

World Airways is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Global Aviation Holdings Inc. As a fully certified United States air carrier since 1948, World has a long history of serving passenger, cargo and military customers across six continents.

S7 Airlines, with headquarters in Moscow, is one of the largest airlines in Russia, operating both domestic and international passenger flights to more than 89 destinations.

Boeing Shanghai was established in June 2006 as a joint venture of Boeing, Shanghai Airport Authorities and Shanghai Airlines. Boeing Shanghai provides high-quality modification and maintenance, repair and overhaul services to regional and international airlines as well as to domestic Chinese airlines
