Lithuanian MRO provider FL Technics plans to set up a maintenance network in Afghanistan from 2013.
Ariana Afghan Airlines has inked a tentative agreement for a "long-term strategic cooperation" with the Vilnius-based company.
FL Technics is to set up a line maintenance station in Kabul in March. But this could be expanded to other Afghan cities in the future, says the MRO provider.
The facilities would be able to support third-party airlines.
