With an estimated lower demand for Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) operations in the post-COVID world, the MRO industry will be facing increased competiteveness amongst the players. Previous strategies are no longer viable nor relevant, pushing all actors to search for opportunities to preserve their status and prepare for the return-to-service. Here is our take on how you can get ready for a flying restart.
MROs have suffered the collateral damage of the drop in passenger demand and travel restrictions. This sudden shift on the market has brought MRO companies to an unprecedented situation and has called for them to adapt themselves and their offering. In this hyper volatile context, Airbus remains by your side to build resilience into your operations, so that when the time comes, you will be ready for a flying restart.
Ramping up in such a volatile context will be challenging for all players in the industry, but even more so for Airlines. From preparing the aircraft to go back to the skies, to effectively setting up new safety requirements, the activities to perform will be many, complex and probably a first ever in such volumes. But as always, Airbus will remain by your side, to make sure you get off to a flying restart.
As an airline, you have been hit at the heart during this pandemic. In this hyper volatile context, we strive at supporting you through the toughest times, so that soon you'll be off again for a flying restart. But until that moment comes, here are a few practical tips on how to best weather the storm and how Airbus can support you in building resilience into your operations.
