Korea Aerospace Industries, the MRO arm of Korean Aviation Engineering and Maintenance Service, is to conduct its first aircraft, a 737, for heavy maintenance at the end of the year.
KAI will begin heavy checks on a Boeing 737 in December of this year. Next year, in 2019, the company will look to perform MRO on a number of A320s and Boeing 787s.
Following the beginning of heavy checks on current aircraft, the company will then begin to diversify its portfolio of services, according to reports.
The company is a new entry into the MRO market, yet it is confident of its success according to earlier comments.
