AJ Walter Aviation, Turkish Technic ink 5-year cooperation agreement
Published: April 26, 2011
A J Walter Aviation said it received a five-year contract from Turkish Technic to provide “full power-by-the-hour and leased stock services for Turkish Airlines’ Boeing 777-300ER fleet.” AJW said it will team with its partner BA Engineering to execute the contract, which covers an initial 12 aircraft in-service and on-order.
AJW also announced plans to combine its resources with Turkish Technic at a new Sabiha Gokcen-based facility to provide integrated aircraft support services to the region. Turkish Technic is investing up to $ 500 million in the facility, which it will open “in order to rapidly grow” MRO and component repair service business activities. Turkish Technic already operates MRO facilities at Istanbul Ataturk.
“Over the last decade, AJW has worked closely and successfully with many airlines in Turkey,” said AJW President Christopher Whiteside. “We have seen the huge growth in this market in recent years.”
