VD Gulf receives approval for B777 aircraft type and extends scope of services

VD Gulf, the Volga-Dnepr Technics company within Russia’s Volga-Dnepr Group, has received type approval for the Boeing 777 aircraft.
The MRO provider, located in Sharjah, UAE, will now be able to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul services for customers with B777 fleets.
With this approval, VD Gulf has extended its base and line maintenance capability from B747-400, B737 CL/NG, and Airbus A320 family to also cover B777-200/300.
Ayrat Gilmutdinov, VD Gulf director commercial, said: “Through constant dialogue with our customers, we know that the introduction of the B777 into our work scope will benefit not only companies working with VD Gulf, but the region as well, facilitating an upgrade of the MRO market in Sharjah and the Middle East by improving overall quality of service.
"We managed to secure the certification within the shortest timeframe possible in compliance with standard procedures and we will put all our efforts and resources into meeting our customers’ expectations.”
The B777 has been in operation for more than 20 years and is the backbone of many leading airlines’ fleets, both passenger and cargo operations.
It is expected that more than 400 airplanes will be delivered up to 2030, with a high number being ordered by airlines in the Middle East.
