honeywell-tk-tecnicTurkish Technic Inc., the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) arm of Turkish Airlines, and Honeywell Aerospace have extended their long term aftermarket partnership. Based at Istanbul ’s Atatürk and Sabiha Gokcen Airports, Turkish Technic Inc. will now offer depot-level MRO services for all Honeywell 131-9B APUs on Boeing 737 aircraft worldwide.

“As the reliance on MRO facilities for faster turnaround times increases, airlines are increasingly looking to repair and replace components during scheduled checks,” said Ahmet Karaman, CEO of Turkish Technic Inc. “Under this contract, we will be able to provide faster servicing for aircrafts at Istanbul Atatürk and Sabiha Gokcen Airports across a greater range of components, and offer commercial benefits to reduce costs for global airlines requiring 131-9B APU MRO services.”

The new contract builds on the existing agreement between the two companies to deliver industry-standard and round-the-clock MRO services to the airlines based in Turkey, and expands the authorization to worldwide coverage to provide airlines around the world with fast, state-of-the-art and authorised servicing capabilities.

“Turkey is one of Europe’s fastest growing hubs for global air traffic, and its aerospace industry must continue to grow its engineering capabilities to support passenger demand,” said Orhan Genis, president of Turkey and Central Asia, Honeywell. “The evolution of our partnership with Turkish Technic Inc. demonstrates our ongoing commitment to, and investment in, our global customers in the region and ensures that airlines operating in this fast growth market can get fast access to the services they need to keep their fleets flying.”
