Paving the way for more Airbus-standard courses in South East Asia, Airbus and Indonesia's GMF AeroAsia have renewed their Maintenance Training Services (MTS) agreement for another five years. Over the last five years, the partnership between Airbus and Garuda Indonesia's maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) arm has resulted in the integration of GMF AeroAsia's instructors into the Airbus' global maintenance training organisation.

GMF AeroAsia has also grown its in-house type-training capabilities for Airbus A320 and A330 aircraft maintenance and developed its ab-initio training capabilities. This has allowed it to successfully offer maintenance training courses for local and regional Airbus customers. The renewal will bring Airbus training standards closer to the European manufacturer's customers in South-East Asia.
