Published: March 2, 2012
Turkish Technic, a wholly owned subsidiary of Turkish Airlines (TK), is looking beyond its borders for MRO joint ventures as its new state-of-the-art MRO facility in Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen nears opening this summer (ATW Daily News, Feb. 13).
GM Ismail Demir told ATW in Istanbul that discussions with potential MRO providers are ongoing in areas including Eastern Europe and Russia.
“We are really busy here in Istanbul,” he said, noting that Turkish Technik must expand to position itself to be a global player. He believes regions that create synergies with the company include Russia and the CIS, the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia.
