FAQ n.136171

Is it allowed for an EU maintenance organisation to perform maintenance in Russia in accordance with Regulation (EU) 1321/2014 on EU registered aircraft in order for them to meet the airworthiness requirements necessary for the return flight or in order to meet their leasing return conditions?


Yes, assuming the aircraft is not in Russian register and has been returned to the lessor’s control. This is allowed because once the aircraft has been returned to the (non-Russian) lessor it is no longer chartered, leased or otherwise controlled by a Russian person per Article 3d of Regulation 833/2014.
