Addis Ababa, December 23 (WIC) - The technical support agreement was signed by Ethiopian Airlines Group Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Tewolde Gebremariam, and Rwandair Chief Executive Officer, Mr. John Mirenge.
Per the agreement, Ethiopian will provide technical support service to Rwandair as of March 2014 for line maintenance up to A-Check and component exchange support for B737NG and Q400 aircraft.
Ethiopian MRO Services will deploy technical team in Kigali to carry out the day to day activities on site while being supported as required from the main base in Addis Ababa.
"We are very pleased to expand our cooperation with Rwandair to the area of MRO. It is only by harnessing our resources and capabilities in Africa and establishing all-round cooperation including in the MRO, commercial and training areas that we will be able to withstand the stiff competition from foreign carriers and succeed in a highly competitive, capital intensive and skill driven industry", said Chief Executive Officer Tewolde Gebremariam.

In line with its Vision 2025 strategic roadmap, Ethiopian MRO Services aims to become the most competitive and leading provider of commercial aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul in Africa by 2025.
