New MRO Hub in Bali’s International Airport

FL Technics Indonesia, a subsidiary of FL Technics, and PT Angkasa Pura Properti and PT Angkasa Pura I (Persero), have signed an agreement to begin developing a 17,000-square metres aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) hub at I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) in Bali, according to reporting from Aviation Business News.

FL Technics is set to invest USD 25-million in the infrastructure project that will include a hangar with six bays to maintain narrowbody aircraft, supported by purpose-built production shops and offices.

The Aircraft maintenance solutions company states that project is driven by the global growth of travel demand, in this case, led by aviation industry surplus from Australia and major markets in Asia and beyond, say Aviation Business News.

Director of FL Technics Indonesia, Martynas Grigas, said “FL Technics is expanding across the globe, entering new continents, yet not losing the focus on key markets. We strengthen our positions by investing in infrastructure, business operations, people, and society itself.

“I am confident FL Technics’ experience, resources, and expertise will grant the success of the project in Bali; our partners will benefit from a global independent MRO network, the industry will gain access to our solutions approved by FAA, EASA, and CASA, while the region will be provided with more than 500-new jobs, as well as new travel, cargo, and trading opportunities.”

I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) is already a crucial aviation hub in the region, with enormous potential for growth as local and global investment continues.

Ristiyanto Eko, Wibowo, director, PT Angkasa Pura Properti, said: “This is a form of our support for the national aviation industry, especially with PT Angkasa Pura I. With traffic at I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport, which continues to increase after the pandemic, this MRO will help airlines increase efficiency and effectiveness in running their business. This is also facility one form of optimising the mainland that we continue to carry out.”

Aviation Business News say that this new facility in Bali will add to FL Technics’ MRO network, which includes current base maintenance hangars in Lithuania (Vilnius and Kaunas International Airports), the United Kingdom (London, Stansted International Airport), Scotland (Prestwick International Airport), Indonesia (Jakarta International Airport), and the recently facility in the Dominican Republic (Punta Cana International Airport).
