GMR BE­COMES THE FIRST MRO IN SOUTH ASIA TO RE­CEIVE FAA AP­PROVAL

SP's Airbuz - - News Briefs -

GMR Aero Tech­nic Ltd. (GATL), a 100 per cent sub­sidiary of GMR Hy­der­abad In­ter­na­tional Air­port Ltd. (GHIAL) has re­ceived the pres­ti­gious & cov­eted Fed­eral Avi­a­tion Ad­min­is­tra­tion (FAA) ap­proval on pop­u­lar Nar­row Body Air­craft (B737 and A320), mak­ing it an au­tho­rized MRO ser­vices provider for all C checks for FAA reg­is­tered B737/ A320 air­craft and for NDT (Non De­struc­tive Test­ing) in­spec­tions. Cur­rently, GATL holds the largest share of the mar­ket for out­sourced air­frame Base Main­te­nance MRO busi­ness in In­dia. The ad­di­tion of FAA cer­ti­fi­ca­tion opens up new op­por­tu­ni­ties for GATL to per­form base main­te­nance and re-de­liv­ery checks for the Op­er­a­tors/ lessors look­ing for an FAA ap­proved MRO. Given the in­creas­ing num­ber of leased and ag­ing air­craft in the fleet in In­dia, the MRO in­dus­try is ex­pect­ing a siz­able uptick in re­de­liv­er­ies in the com­ing years as the older air­craft com­plete their lease terms with the In­dian car­ri­ers.
