China Airlines "EMO" (Engineering Maintenance Organization) was founded in 1959, together with the establishment of the airlines. At the beginning, our support covered our own fleet only. Afterwards, our maintenance capacity grew steadily along with the construction of the 3-bay hangar, and the engine shop in the late 90s. Thus, we became one of the advanced maintenance plants in Asia that could offer a comprehensive range of maintenance services to third-party businesses. To become a key player in the regional MRO business, the organization underwent restructuring in 2009, with the maintenance function split up into three main divisions: Maintenance, Engineering, and Quality Assurance.
There are more than 2,300 employees working at China Airlines EMO, which has two hangars capable of housing five wide-body aircraft and one narrow-body aircraft. In addition, we have a full scale component shop, engine shop, and an engine test cell with a rating up to 120,000 pounds of thrust.
With these facilities and manpower, we can support China Airlines’ own fleet and third-party customers for aircraft heavy checks of Boeing (747/777/737) and Airbus (A300/A310/A320/A330/A340) fleet. In the meantime, our Engine shop can offer repair and overhaul over a wide range of engines including PW4000, CFM56-7B, CFM56-5C4, CF6-80C2 and CF6-80E1 engines. Furthermore, our in-house component shop can provide repair and overhaul of electrical equipment, instruments, pneudraulics systems, and wheel and brake systems. These capabilities have all been certified by FAA, EASA, CAAC and CAA Taiwan.
