Indonesia establishes military/commercial aerospace MRO company
✈️ GMF AeroAsia
Several Indonesian state-owned aerospace companies have signed an agreement to collaborate on setting up a new holding company that will provide commercial/military aerospace maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services.
The memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the companies and the Ministry of State Owned Enterprises, signed in early March, is intended to support the development of Indonesia as a centre for MRO in Southeast Asia, the government said. The new company will be named Indonesia Service Hub and is expected to offer services for fixed- and rotary-wing platforms.
Indonesian companies to own stakes in the new entity comprise military aerospace specialist PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI); GMF AeroAsia, a subsidiary of the national airline Garuda Indonesia that specialises in commercial aerospace MRO; aero-engine service company PT Nusantara Turbin dan Propulsi; MRO company PT Indopelita Aircraft Services; and PT Merpati Maintenance Facility, a military/commercial service provider operated by Merpati Nusantara Airlines.
