Turkish Technic is to partner AJ Walter Aviation for component support on its parent company's Boeing 777 fleet, as well as to provide component repair capabilities to the UK-based parts distributer.
The first part of the agreement will "initially" cover 12 in-service and ordered Turkish Airlines 777-300ER aircraft, says AJW. According to Flightglobal's ACAS database, the Istanbul-based carrier currently operates 13 of the type and has three more on order.
The "power-by-the-hour" component support contract will give the Turkish company access to AJW's pool of leased stock. If the equipment needs repair, this will be provided through British Airways' MRO arm BA Engineering.
The second part of the agreement covers Turkish Technic's own component repair capabilities. The MRO company will service equipment on behalf AJW at its new facility at Sabiha Gökçen International airport, on the Asian side of Istanbul.
AJW president Christopher Whiteside said his company has seen "huge growth" in its business with Turkish carriers over the past 10 years.
