Goodrich is to team up with Turkish Airlines' Technic division to establish an Istanbul-based joint venture company that will perform maintenance, repair and overhaul work on nacelles. The so-called Goodrich HABOM venture expects to open a certificated repair station at Istanbul's Sabiha Gokcen International airport in 2009, providing MRO services and rotable support for Turkish Airlines' fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft as well as support for other carriers throughout the region.
