MRO Baltics, Eastern Europe & Russia (BEER) was this year organized in Vilnius, and we had the pleasure to be able to attend at the event – both as participants and exhibitors with a show stand for our services.
We met many key MRO workshops as well as airliners. The presented seminar topics, discussions and meetings with representatives, gave us valuable insight for better understanding of maintenance needs in the industry over the next few years.
Latest news announced at the Aviation Week
The airline industry is undergoing quite an optimistic period with an annual growth rate in numbers of aircraft of 4-5% per year according to forecast from ICF. The estimates show that number of jet aircraft will grow from todays approximately 25 000 to over 30 000 in 2019. Together with a huge renewal of old aircraft, this is expected to require huge increase of maintenance.
The turbo propeller market is relatively stable and seems to maintain their share of the total volume. It look like turbo propeller aircraft will represent an interesting “next generation” aircraft with less emissions and fuel consumptions. It will also show the way into new electric aircraft to be build over the next decade. However, for the next decade, traditional aircraft will continue to dominate the market.
