Signings at MRO Middle East Signal Upward Swing for Aviation Industry

Event highlights increased scope for innovation and opportunities for growth

MRO Middle East this week highlighted positive sentiment as the aviation industry continues to recover and plan for growth with a number of agreements being signed during the event.

The premier industry gathering returned to a live event, one of the first of its kind for the aviation community in the region, on 15 and 16 June at Dubai World Trade Center (DWTC), welcoming industry leaders, buyers and specialists from across the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) industry.

Among the agreements made at the show were Joramco and VD Gulf (UAE), signing a framework agreement on MRO cooperation.

Both independent MROs aim to expand their existing capabilities and capacity and optimize their synergies for a one-stop-shop upscaled customer experience.

Boeing and Turkish Technic also announced a renewed tailored parts package agreement, extending the MRO provider’s current contract by three years.

The contract will enable Turkish Technic to reinforce its efficiency, reliability and access to a global network of parts and component services.

The signings highlight the upward swing in the industry as organizations look to collaborate and use innovative methods to drive positive results.

Husham Osman, Technical Director at Royal Jet commented: “Many companies have enhanced their innovation during the pandemic, particularly for planning and development of solutions for MRO.

"The period gave us the time to install cargo configuration on our aircraft at Royal Jet for example, something we had not done before.

"Many operators have deferred engine maintenance to 2022. There will be full facilities available in the next year or two.”

Damon Seksaoui, General Manager at Liebherr Middle East added: “Dubai has provided an excellent infrastructure for testing, clear travel rules and procedures and the UAE government deserves to be praised for enabling business and safe travel.”

MRO Middle East will next take place on 22-23 February at the Dubai World Trade Center.
