AIRBUS AND THAI TO EVALUATE NEW MRO BUSINESS
In early March, Airbus signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Thai Airways International (THAI) to evaluate the development of a major new maintenance and overhaul (MRO) facility at U-tapao International Airport near Bangkok. The new MRO would be one of the most modern and extensive in the Asia-pacific region, offering line and heavy maintenance services for a wide range of aircraft types. A new complex would feature the latest digital technologies to analyse aircraft maintenance data, as well as advanced inspection techniques, including the use of drones to monitor aircraft airframes.
三月初，空客与泰国国际航空公司（ THAI）签署了一份谅解备忘录（ MOU)，评估在曼谷附近的乌塔堡国际机场新建一个重要保养与大修基地。它将是亚太地区最现代化和规模最大的保养与大修基地，为各种不同类型的飞机提供航线维修和飞机大修服务。新基地将采用最新的数字技术来分析飞机维修数据，以及先进的检测技术包括无人机来监测飞机机身状况。
