President Director of GMF AeroAsia Richard Budihadianto and President of Regent Aerospace Corporation (RAC) Reza Soltanianzadeh signed a Cabin Maintenance Cooperation Agreement in Jakarta on September 17th 2014. The two-year joint operation agreement includes cabin maintenance of all aircraft types. “The cooperation is an initial step to a more significant cooperation,” said Arif Faisal, Executive Program Manager for Cabin Interior Partnership.
Initially, GMF will use the quality system of Regent Aerospace Corporation until the Airworthiness Release Certificate is issued by Regent. In this period, Regent will convey skill, knowledge and technology to GMF. Moreover, Regent will support the supply of parts, repair, recondition and refurbishment, including parts manufacturing. Therefore, GMF and Regent will implement joint marketing and other sales activities.
Meanwhile, the President Director of GMF, Richard Budihadianto said that the joint operation would increase GMF market penetration for cabin maintenance. As a brand, GMF will also increase due to partnering with a world class corporation. “Through this cooperation, GMF will have full capability for cabin interior,” he stated. Thus, GMF’s target market is not only the domestic and regional market, but the international market as well.
