Airbus Reportedly Eyeing Indian MRO Purchase

India’s Business Standard newspaper has reported that Airbus is considering the purchase of a stake in GMR’s maintenance facility in Hyderabad, India. The aircraft manufacturer has been seeking an MRO provider in India for some time in order to support Airbus customers in the country, although it has previously indicated that it would not seek to manage such an operation directly. The Hyderabad site was a joint venture between GMR and Malaysia Airlines, although the latter party has been trying to offload its stake to GMR. A source told Business Standard that talks between Airbus and GMR have been ongoing for the several months, and could cover a partial sale or full divestment.
