‘With the growing demand for narrow and wide body aircraft technical maintenance services in the rapidly developing GCC market, it is crucial that we remain in close proximity to our clients . We are confident that our highly competitive world-class aviation technical support and maintenance services mainly contribute to the success of the global aviation industry’ said GATCO chief executive Hakim Al-Allawy.
The range of services offered in the new line maintenance stations will extend to on-call maintenance, scheduled, overnight, pre-flight, daily, weekly checks and component replacements, inspections and repairs. The line maintenance support will also include full 24/7 AOG services.
