MRO Japan to Fully Launch Aircraft Lease Return Business


MRO Japan is set to fully launch its aircraft lease return business.

Aircraft leases typically last for either 8 or 12 years, and at the end of the lease period, the aircraft must be returned in a condition that meets the terms of the contract, requiring return maintenance that complies with international standards specified by the leasing company.

Japan did not have an MRO that was certified by EASA to handle return maintenance, which meant that this type of work had to be outsourced abroad. With MRO Japan obtaining certification in 2022, it is now possible to conduct return maintenance domestically.

Star Flyer is expected to entrust MRO Japan with its lease return maintenance from 2024 to 2026, and the two companies will collaborate on this maintenance as well as on heavy maintenance conducted two years prior to return, considering it as a preparatory stage for the return maintenance.
