MRO Operations

Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services are essential for optimal aircraft operation, which requires vigilant and strict maintenance operations throughout its entire lifespan. As aviation keeps growing in Latin America, so will the need for MRO services. Mexico’s central location, established aerospace industry and a young workforce puts it in a good position to increase its share of this US$68 billion market.

This chapter will consider the current status of MRO service providers in Mexico and their efforts to capture an increasing share of the national and international market. The main topics to discuss in this chapter are the business opportunities that MRO owners have found, their market outlook and how cross-border competition is affecting their business operations.
