Air India aircraft maintenance, modifications to be under ‘Make in India’

Mumbai: Air India Engineering Services Ltd (AIESL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Air India, has signed a Letter of Intent with GDC Technics – a US-based aerospace engineering company – to form a strategic partnership to pursue maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and modification opportunities for Air India airplanes as well as other commercial aircraft throughout the region.

Under the agreement, GDC will provide engineering and certification services, while AIESL will provide the labour, equipment and facilities required to perform MRO and modification services in accordance with FAA, EASA and DGCA regulations.
The growing Indian and Asia Pacific markets provide an opportunity for AIESL to expand its already elaborate MRO capabilities to aircraft beyond just the Air India fleet. This partnership comes at a time when Air India is facing stiff competition from other carriers such as Star Air launching new flights and international budget airlines like Jazeera Airways covering new routes.

A GDC Technics Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, and Safety (RAMS) team was recently dispatched to India to complete modification work at an AIESL facility.
