China Airlines and Nordam Aerospace Maintenance Group have signed a memorandum of understanding to explore the establishment of an MRO joint venture to service thrust reversers and other composite aerospace parts.

China Airlines says the JV will primarily maintain the thrust reverser and composite parts fitted on the carrier's fleet, as well as to further develop its maintenance arm’s composite repair capabilities for composite parts such as nacelles, exhaust, radomes, flight controls and aerostructures.

The facility is also intended to be Nordam’s sole commercial MRO facility in Asia and will offer its services under the Nordam brand name, adds the SkyTeam alliance member.

Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that China Airlines operates a fleet of 86 aircraft, including 31 Airbus widebodies, 21 Boeing 737-800s, 10 777-300ERs and 24 747-400s and -400 freighters.
