Saurya Airlines CRJ-200 ‘9N-AME’ is now back to operation after successful completion of C-Check at China. The Bombardier series aircraft departed to Jinan Yaoqiang International Airport, China on November 15 for its C-Check under the command of Pilot Kumar, Anup Thapa and Manish Shakya.
The aircraft landed at Tribhuvan International Airport at around 5:15 PM local time yesterday and initiated its scheduled flight to Biratnagar from today morning.
It took 25 days for the completion of C-Check for the CRJ-200 jet aircraft as C-Check is the advanced maintenance check requiring a majority of the aircraft’s components to be inspected.
It is performed approximately every 20-24 months or a specific amount of actual flight hours or as per the requirement details from the manufacturer. Due to the complexity of C-check, it is carried out in a hangar at a maintenance base having huge space.
At present, Saurya Airlines is operating flights to the major destinations namely Bhadrapur, Bhairahawa, Biratnagar, Dhangadhi and Nepalgunj with its two Bombardier CRJ-200 series aircraft. The company is also in the process of acquiring additional CRJ aircraft.
