Air India has opened its new 9,000m2 MRO facility at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad.
The facility will be used to carry out work on the flag carrier’s fleet of 125 aircraft by its maintenance arm Air India Engineering Services.
Air India confirmed the facility will provide base and line maintenance, component and material support, aircraft engine and technical training services on “all major aircraft types”.
The government-owned airline also said it intends for the facility to eventually offer services for other carriers.
India’s civil aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju said the site will help Air India reduce its spending on repairs and maintenance by bringing work in-house.
