Nation to host airlines maintenance centre


HCM CITY — Vietnam Airlines and the Philippine-headquartered Milcon Gulf Group have signed a memorandum of understanding to conduct a study on establishing a major maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility in Viet Nam.

Under the MoU, Milcon Gulf Group will partner with Vietnam Airlines to establish a new company to provide MRO services to Vietnam Arlines and other air carriers worldwide.

Once completed, the facility will provide a full range of engineering and maintenance services including aircraft overhaul, repair and components for both Boeing and Airbus fleets with emphasis on Airbus A320, A321 and Boeing 777 aircraft.

The new company which will have significant maintenance facilities in Ha Noi, HCM City and Da Nang will provide maintenance services within Viet Nam, Asia, Middle East and eventually to Europe and Americas.

Shameem Qurashi, Chairman of Milcon Gulf Group said his company has a long history in Viet Nam and is eager to do more with Viet Nam’s young and trainable staff in a country well positioned to be a key player in the growing worldwide MRO marketplace.

Milcon Gulf Group is a privately held conglomerate involved in international projects across a variety of industries and sectors, including aerospace, banking and finance, project structuring and joint venture development.

Since the early 1980’s the Milcon Group has developed, financed and delivered several landmark projects in a variety of countries in the region. — VNS
