Carriers face stiff competition from mega airline mergers and the increased proliferation of low-cost carriers on both short-haul and long-haul flights. As a result, airlines are starting to focus their efforts on their core business: serving their passengers, optimizing the customer experience and choosing to outsource one of their biggest cost areas, the maintenance of aircraft. This is opening up huge opportunities for service providers.
Meanwhile, the model for engaging in business with third-party maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO) companies and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) has changed. Airlines are starting to take delivery of aircraft made of new and complex materials which go much longer between airframe checks and repairs.
