Aeroman, which provides airframe and component MRO along with associated engineering, testing, inventory and logistics services from a sizable complex of maintenance hangars and specialist workshops at El Salvador International Airport, has become an affiliate member of ALTA, the non-profit Latin American and Caribbean Air Transport Association.
Not only is Aeroman the fourth MRO company to become an affiliate member of ALTA, according to Eduardo Iglesias, ALTA’s executive director, but it is also the third MRO company to do so within the past 40 days.
On April 3 ALTA announced that Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance had become an affiliate member of the association. Then ALTA announced on 18 April that Costa Rica-based MRO company COOPESA had also become an affiliate.
MTU Maintenance was the first MRO company to become an affiliate member of ALTA, which says its affiliates are airline-related organizations that work collaboratively with the association on aviation-industry initiatives throughout the Latin America and Caribbean region.
“Aircraft maintenance and repair shops provide a valuable necessity and our growing partnership with MRO companies such as Aeroman contribute greatly to the high level of quality maintenance services needed by the region’s airlines,” says Iglesias.
ALTA’s three new MRO-industry partners have provided several reasons for affiliating with the Miami-based air transport-industry association. However, a common factor in all three MRO companies’ decisions to join ALTA is that they expect their affiliations to produce opportunities for new business with airlines in the Latin America and Caribbean region.
“Over the past years we have had the opportunity to work with many of its member airlines, and with this new affiliation between ALTA and Aeroman, we seek to gain further insights into the Latin American and Caribbean aviation community and to explore new business opportunities in the region,” says Aeroman CEO Alejandro Echeverria…Fuente: http://www.mro-network.com/maintenance-repair-overhaul/alta-adds-trio-mro-members
