Air India arm plans MRO unit in Muscat

Air India’s maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) subsidiary Air India Engineering Services (AIESL), is reported to have firmed up plans to open a MRO unit in Muscat, Oman. The new unit is expected to generate labour revenue of at least $500k per annum, and will work on both Air India aircraft and third party airlines operating in and around Oman.

AIESL is not a part of its Air India’s disinvestment process but the plan is to hive off the subsidiary via a demerger or other mechanism.

The Muscat MRO unit has received an approval from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation in India but is reported to be awaiting a clearance from the Public Authority for Civil Aviation, Oman.
