AirAsia Group creates MRO for owned planes and other airlines in Asia-Pacific region

AirAsia Group announced Wednesday (9 September) that it had created a new MRO company called Asia Digital Engineering, a wholly-owned subsidiary that will provide engineering services for AirAsia’s group of airlines as well as other commercial airlines in the region.

CEO of AirAsia Group Tony Fernandes said, “Asia Digital Engineering expands our existing expertise in aircraft engineering and is well positioned to become Asia’s leading data and technology-driven Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) service provider for all commercial airlines in the region, starting with the AirAsia group of airlines. This new business division provides numerous efficiencies and will leverage off our combined 19 years of experience in operating and maintaining a large fleet of over 250 Airbus A320 and A330 family aircraft. All AirAsia engineers and MRO assets will be consolidated to provide a centralised technical support service for our fleet of aircraft, and potentially for other commercial airlines in the near future also.”

The CEO of the new group, Mahesh Kumar, said, “I am honoured for the opportunity by the AirAsia management to lead this new business unit which has just received the Aircraft Maintenance Organisation (AMO) approval by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM). We would like to thank CAAM and other relevant authorities for believing in us as we push the envelope in all areas of commercial aviation, which includes air transport services, passenger services, and now, MRO services for airlines.”
