It's one of the ways for "Airline MROs" to develop in competition with OEMs. Turkish Technic, the MRO division of Turkish Airlines has just announced the creation of a joint venture with the Turkish industrial company Havelsan for in-flight Internet entertainment systems and services, as well as for other software applications used in civil aviation.

The underlying idea is to be able to supply IFEC systems at a competitive prices, to meet the needs of Turkish airlines first of all, then for other operators in the region.

This joint venture will design, produce, maintain, repair, market, sell and provide after sales services for its solutions. It will be based initially at the Turkish Technics facility at Sabiha Gökçen, Istanbul's second airport, with commercial activity to start in 2018.

The joint venture is already planning line-fit installation of its IFEC systems on aircraft which will be delivered to Turkish Airlines between 2022-2023.

Turkish Technic and Havelsan linked up with the Inmarsat operator in April with the signature of an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) to be able to integrate Inmarsat's GX Aviation broadband connectivity (Global Xpress constellation, Ka band) into their future IFEC systems intended for emerging markets.

Remember that Turkish Technic also produces aircraft seats in partnership with Turkish Airlines and the automotive equipment company Assan Hanil via their shared company TSI (Turkish Seats Industries).

Its seats are gradually filling economy class cabins on certain Turkish Airlines aircraft, with Boeing 737-800s first of all in 2014 then Airbus A319/A320/A321s and A330-300s and finally its latest 777-300ERs from last year.
