Indonesian MRO firm GMF AeroAsia has secured contracts from four African carriers, in a deal worth $60 million.

Under the terms of the deal, GMF will maintain and repair aircraft operated by Service Air, and Nigerian carriers Hak Air, Kabo Air and Max Air.

"We are going to maintain and repair their Boeing 747 and 737 series starting this year," says GMF president and chief executive Richard Budihadianto.

The aircraft will undergo maintenance at GMF's facilities at Soekarno-Hatta airport in Jakarta.

In addition, the company signed agreements with several Nigerian companies to build MRO facilities in the country.

The facilities would focus on airframe and component maintenance, and engineering support, adds GMF.
