New MRO Joint Venture Launched in Thailand’s EEC

Mar 2019

BOSA-Thayaan Aircraft Service Company (BTAS) has become the first aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) organization to be approved under the Royal Thai Government’s (RTG) Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) initiative. The EEC’s vision for the aviation and aerospace community is to build the eastern seaboard of Thailand into a regional MRO hub.

BTAS is a joint-venture between UK-based BOSA (BOS Aerospace Ltd.) and Thailand-based Thayaan Consult’s Group.  BTAS currently holds Part-145 maintenance certifications, and can perform line maintenance on nearly all aircraft types except for the A380/A350.

BTAS is looking at expanding MRO operations within Thailand and Southeast Asia. The company is currently in negotiations with regional airport authorities to bring its line maintenance capabilities in the near future.
