In 1985, Thai Technical was established by Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI) as a maintenance center for the sustenance of wide-body aircraft, as well as, the corresponding components installed in each affiliated aircraft. Today, THAI Technical is one of the most known leaders in Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul of commercial aircraft. The MRO has three main maintenance facilities: Donmueang base, Suvarnabhumi base and Utapao base which gives it the possibility of offering light and heavy maintenance containing serious modifications, interior and exterior painting, component and engine overhaul.
Thai Airways’ MRO arm wishes to integrate its U – Tapao based joint venture MRO with Airbus by March 2020, for launch two years later. Once 2021 rolls around Thai Technical has already announced that they will be pushing forward on applying for brand new certs with multiple flying organizations. Thai Technical also wants to ensure it’s the customer that no matter what, this MRO facility will be opening regardless of Airbuses final decision.
The MRO will sit on over eighty-three acres of land, more than enough space to hold even the biggest of planes. The new MRO plans to be able to handle a myriad of the request. Anything from working on whole engines and complicated brake lines to small things, like detailing and maintenance. Planes of all sorts will also be supported at the MRO station, such as classic Boeing planes and newer and older Airbus models. Once the whole place is up and running it should be able to support clients of all magnitudes from all around the world.
