Revima Group and Malaysia Airlines collaborate to provide a one-stop-center service on landing gear replacement and overhaul solutions to third party customers.
Malaysia Airlines to provide landing gear replacement services
During the MRO Middle East trade fair, Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB) announced its collaboration with the MRO service provider Revima Group, specialized in APU and landing gear solutions. This will enable Malaysia Airlines to provide landing gear replacement services for the French group customers at its hangars in Kuala Lumpur airport. Through this collaboration, Malaysia Airlines hopes to grow its share in the Asia Pacific MRO market, as well as promote the services to fellow operators. “We believe that this will improve our capabilities and facilitate us in sharpening our competitive edge as an MRO provider in the region”, comments Malaysia Airlines Group Chief Operations Officer Ahmad Luqman Ahmad Azmi.
Hangar space has become a scarce resource
Likewise, Revima Group will be supporting landing gear overhauls for MAB customers at any one of its facilities, including the newly constructed landing gear overhaul facility in Chonburi, Thailand. Revima will also provide technical and training support for fleet landing gear replacements, including knowledge sharing on best practices and facility benchmarking for Malaysia Airlines, allowing competencies and capabilities enhancements. On the other hand, thanks to this partnership, the French MRO service provider will be able to leverage on Malaysia Airlines’ experience in airframe maintenance, as well as landing gear replacement experience for both narrow-body and wide-body aircraft.
Olivier Legrand, President & CEO of Revima Group stresses: “Hangar space to conduct landing gear removal & installations has become a scarce resource in the high growth environment of air travel. We look forward to the ability to provide this additional service to our customers, and to our extended partnership with Malaysia Airlines”.
