The MRO landscape in Eastern Europe, the Baltic States and Russia is shifting, with potential opportunities arising from ever increasing technology developments and competition.
With the increase in next generation and western aircraft, regional MROs need to prepare their businesses to embrace new technologies and platforms and secure the financing to expand their service offerings. MROs also need to decide whether to develop, expand and diversify their business or stay within the region and maintain often ageing fleets.
Airlines need to increase their knowledge base in efficiency and cost effectiveness when procuring maintenance services and understand how to streamline processes to compete against the successful low-cost operators. The region's airlines need to understand how market developments will affect them and what the best course for them is to secure a knowledgeable and trained in-house workforce at the same time as obtaining quality and customer focused MRO services.
With the regional industry at a crossroads, Aviation Week introduces the first Regional MRO, focused exclusively on the aircraft maintenance and airline industry in Eastern Europe, the Baltics and Russia.
