and suc­cess­ful ap­proach, mov­ing rapidly, ef­fi­ciently and cost-ef­fec­tively to pro­vide any in­dus­try ser­vice.

By mon­i­tor­ing the lat­est trends, re­main­ing adept with the lat­est tech­nolo­gies and adapt­ing ac­cord­ingly, the com­pany has been able to po­si­tion it­self as a one-stop shop for all MRO needs within the aerospace in­dus­try.

“Be­cause we strive to stay a step ahead of the evolv­ing needs of our clients, we em­pha­sise ex­cel­lence in the firm’s core prac­tice ar­eas and in­dus­try ca­pa­bil­i­ties while equally aim­ing to grow in pri­or­ity mar­kets through­out the MENA re­gion,” Ash­ban re­veals.

“To this end, SAEI is solidly po­si­tioned for fu­ture growth. Each and ev­ery mem­ber of our firm is as proac­tive and in­no­va­tive as the times de­mand and our clients re­quire.”

Em­body­ing ex­cel­lence

Backed up by al­most 60 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence and a work­force of more than 4,500 highly-trained pro­fes­sion­als, SAEI pro­vides a broad ar­ray of MRO ser­vices through­out the civil and mil­i­tary seg­ments, not only to Saudia in­ter­nally, but or­gan­i­sa­tions glob­ally.

“Op­er­at­ing out of our main base in Jed­dah, we ac­com­mo­date both nar­row-body air­craft and wide body air­craft, such as the Air­bus 320, Air­bus 330, Boe­ing 787 and Boe­ing 777,” ex­plains Ash­ban.

Since its re­lo­ca­tion to the King Ab­dul Aziz In­ter­na­tional Air­port, the firm has come to cat­e­gorise its of­fer­ings in five key MRO seg­ments that in­clude line main­te­nance, air­craft main­te­nance, com­po­nent main­te­nance, en­gine main­te­nance and sup­ple­men­tary ser­vices.

These full main­te­nance ser­vices are ex­ten­sive across these cat­e­gories, pro­vid­ing en­gine ser­vices, com­po­nents, air­frame MRO ser­vice and sup­ply chain so­lu­tions.

“SAEI has been the right tech­ni­cal arm of Saudia that pro­vides its full main­te­nance sup­port to the Saudia fleet, the firm’s af­fil­i­ates and sev­eral other ma­jor lo­cal, re­gional and in­ter­na­tional air­lines,” ex­plains Ash­ban.

Pi­o­neer­ing progress

It is this proac­tive ap­proach that has been fun­da­men­tal to con­tin­ual suc­cess of SAEI, a cul­ture that is fur­ther ev­i­dent in the com­pany’s on­go­ing ex­pan­sions at the Aziz Ab­dul In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

With work hav­ing be­gun fol­low­ing an agree­ment be­tween Saudia, SAEI and a con­sor­tium of in­ter­na­tional con­sul­tants rep­re­sented by Dar Al Han­dasa in March 2010, the con­struc­tion of a new state-of-theart 900,000 square me­tre fa­cil­ity on the north­east side of the air­port is nearing its completion, with the site set to fur­ther rev­o­lu­tionise SAEI’S MRO ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

Hous­ing 11 air­craft hangars, eight air­craft main­te­nance shops, 27 air­craft com­po­nent shops, three tech­ni­cal lab­o­ra­to­ries, mod­ern ware­houses and a de­sign and man­u­fac­tur­ing cen­tre, amongst count­less other fa­cil­i­ties, it will be a staunch up­grade on SAEI’S ex­ist­ing head­quar­ters, as Ash­ban ex­plains.

“With the cur­rent site now 30 years old, the two hangars and 32,000 square me­tres of com­bined air­craft main­te­nance shops and com­po­nent shops are quickly be­com­ing sat­is­fac­tory to de­mands in com­par­i­son to our on­go­ing growth,” he states.

“With the new 904,000 square me­tre site set to have four times as many Over­seas hangars, projects 77,000 are par­tic­u­larly square pop­u­lar me­tres of air­craft main­te­nance space and
