Thales takes charge for repairing all avionics components on the Airbus A320 and A350 families in Asia-Pacific

Thales will be Airbus' subcontractor for MRO across Asia-Pacific for repair of all avionics components on Airbus' single-aisle and A350 aircraft for seven years.

The repairs will be carried out from Thales' regional maintenance hub in Singapore, the largest of its three global MRO hubs. The Thales Repair Center in Singapore processes more than 40,000 components each year.

Note that the Asia-Pacific region alone accounts for one third of all Airbus activities in commercial aircraft, as Eric Schulz, the new Executive Vice-President Chief of Sales, Marketing and Contracts for Airbus Commercial Aircraft during a press conference in Singapore.

Last year alone, 367 Airbus aircraft were delivered to the region from a total of 718 aircraft from the aircraft manufacturer's various final assembly lines, more than half of them.

Airbus estimates that Asia-Pacific will need 14,000 new aircraft in the next 20 years.
