China Airlines pursues MRO ambitions
Boeing and China Airlines have signed an MoU to explore the development of the airline’s capabilities to serve the growing Asian MRO market.
Boeing and China Airlines have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore the development of the airline’s capabilities to serve the growing maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) market in Asia.
Boeing anticipates providing technical support and maintenance training to China Airlines to enhance its ability to service Boeing products.
In addition, Boeing intends to work closely with China Airlines to qualify it as an approved Boeing supplier, which will enable the airline to bid for work on Boeing products and services.
China Airlines will have the opportunity to become a qualified Boeing Global Fleet Care service provider in Asia. In addition, Boeing aims to aid China Airlines’ qualification as a potential Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) conversion site, as well as explore training opportunities to develop the airline’s capability as an airframe modification supplier for Boeing’s airplanes.
China Airlines signed an MOU on maintenance with Airbus in January this year and was recently awarded AS9110 Certification by French Standardization Association AFNOR, thus becoming a qualified Airbus maintenance service supplier.
