Malaysia Airlines collaborates with REVIMA to provide Landing Gear Services

Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB) will be collaborating with REVIMA, a leading Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) solutions provider, specialized in APU and landing gear solutions.

REVIMA has over 60 years expertise in MRO with major industry players and has recently extended their footprint in the Asia Pacific region via their newly constructed state-of-the-art landing gear overhaul facility in Chonburi, Thailand.

Both companies will work together in providing a one-stop-service center on landing gear replacement and overhaul solutions to third party customers. This will enable Malaysia Airlines to provide landing gear replacement services for REVIMA customers at their KUL Hangar.

Likewise, REVIMA will be supporting landing gear overhauls for MAB customers at any one of its facilities, in addition to offering its customers landing gear replacement packages with Malaysia Airlines. REVIMA will also provide technical and training support for fleet landing gear replacements, including knowledge sharing on best practices and facility benchmarking for Malaysia Airlines, allowing competencies and capabilities enhancements.

Both parties will also have a role in marketing and promoting their joint services to IATA 3 operators, within the Asia Pacific region. Through this, Malaysia Airlines hopes to grow its share in the Asia Pacific MRO market, as well as promote the services to fellow operators. REVIMA, on the other hand, will be able to leverage on Malaysia Airlines’ experience in airframe maintenance, as well as landing gear replacement experience for both narrow-body and wide-body aircraft.

According to Malaysia Airlines Group Chief Operations Officer Ahmad Luqman Ahmad Azmi Malaysia Airlines Berhad is always on the lookout to improve upon and provide top notch services to all of our customers, from the passengers, to our fellow airlines who look for the best value in all our service levels. Our steadfast dedication is to live up to their standards, which leads us to work with notable aviation industry leaders like REVIMA, a leading independent MRO solutions provider. This collaboration provides an amazing opportunity to grow our MRO operations, whilst improving the standard and quality of service we provide for landing gear related matters.  We believe that this will improve our capabilities and facilitate us in sharpening our competitive edge as an MRO provider in the region.”

Olivier Legrand, President & CEO of Revima Group saidWe are thrilled with the opportunity to increase our longtime partnership with Malaysia Airlines to offer landing gear replacement slots through their state-of-the-art hangars in Kuala Lumpur. Hangar space to conduct landing gear removal & installations has become a scarce resource in the high growth environment of air travel. We look forward to the ability to provide this additional service to our customers, and to our extended partnership with Malaysia Airlines
