I was a bit confused what an S check is and maybe it was a typo and maybe they meant A check. Searched and found out what it is.
An "S" check is nearly equivalent to a D check but is incorporated with the c-check that would be done at the same time. Only on Airbus.

An S check is a structural inspection check which, depending on aircraft type and age/flight cycles is done anywhere from every 3 to 6 years. It requires the whole aircraft to be stripped down and gutted which is why airlines perform it at the same time as heavy C checks. There are no "D" checks on A330 aircraft.

AP-BMI now apparently returning to Pakistan as ferry flight NL-3 from Turkey after undergoing maintenance checks. The A330 was ferried from Pakistan to Turkey on December 13, 2017.

Maybe during maintenance checks in Turkey she got painted in Shaheen Air's recently revised livery.
