Clarification from Sri Lankan Airlines on AOG Technics

Sri Lankan Airlines Statement on Social Media Allegations Relating to AOG Technics 8 January 2024;

Colombo – The Civil Aviation Authority of UK and European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) issued safety notices to alert owners, operators, maintenance organisations, and distributors of suspected unapproved parts distributed by AOG Technics on 4 August 2023.

In a subsequent scheduled EASA audit, Sri Lankan Airlines was specifically asked whether AOG Technics was a supplier. At the time, Sri Lankan Airlines confirmed that AOG Technics was on the airline’s approved supplier list, however, Sri Lankan was also able to confirm that it had no record of any direct purchase made from AOG Technics.

Further, AOG Technics was removed from Sri Lankan Airlines’ approved supplier list in September 2023.

In the light the current social media allegations, we have had our audit and engineering quality departments complete independent audits and confirm our records and we have further obtained letters from our two key service providers in the areas under question, CFM Materials and GE Engine Services Malaysia Sdn Bhd, confirming that they have not supplied the airline with any parts purchased from AOG Technics.

The aviation industry is highly regulated, and Sri Lankan Airlines undergoes multiple audits from the Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka and international entities to ensure that safety is never compromised.
