MENA Aerospace Strikes Major Deal with HAITEC

MENA Aerospace, the wholly Bahrain-owned provider of comprehensive aviation and aerospace services, and partner of Bahrain International Airport (BIA), have announced a significant milestone in the company’s development, and for Bahrain’s aviation sector. Entering into a partnership with German-based HAITEC, one of Europe’s leading FAA-approved maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) companies, MENA Aerospace will operate an expanded technical facility from its Bahrain hangar, servicing the Middle East and Africa regions, and focusing on the widely-used narrow-bodied airframes.

The partnership was officially established at an event attended by Dr. Mohammed Juman, Managing Director & Founder, and Mr Omar Mattar, CEO Mena Aerospace, accompanying a senior delegation of HAITEC’s officials from Germany, Mr Gereon Arens, CEO, and Mr Martin O’Boyle, Commercial Director. Officials from the partner companies met with Bahrain’s Minister of Transportation & Telecommunications, His Excellency Engineer Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, followed by Mr Mohammed Yousif Al Bin Falah, CEO Bahrain Airport Company, to discuss the cooperation between all parties, and its positive impact on the national economy.

Speaking from the event, Dr Juman commented: “We see our role at MENA Aerospace to be an integral part of Bahrain’s aviation ecosystem, and with the expansion of the new airport we all have to innovate to meet the increased demand the industry will see. This deal with HAITEC will bring an unmatched level of service and quality of German engineering to the country, which all our partner airlines can benefit from. With the addition of an EASA-approved turnkey MRO service to our suite of solutions, we are now a 360-degree aviation provider, with aircraft operation and management, charter sales, ground services, aircraft parking, line maintenance and logistical support.”

“As an organisation we are constantly focused on re-defining quality in all our service offerings, with the safety and security of our clients and their passengers as top-of-mind. I would like to thank His Excellency Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed for supporting and facilitating this partnership, and for his active role in the progress of Bahrain’s aviation sector. My gratitude also goes to Mr Mohamed Al Binfalah, who leads operations at our close partner Bahrain Airport Company (BAC), as well as our Advise Avia and MENA Aerospace board of staff who made this expansion possible.”

MENA Aerospace operates the only private hangar at BIA, large enough accommodate up to B757 aircraft, with a capacity of 295 passengers. The new enterprise will not only create jobs for Bahraini and expatriate aviation professionals, it is expected to generate foreign investment into the country through its operations. HIATECH EASA is a world-class independent MRO company with over 400 staff servicing over 50 customers from their hangar facilities at Hahn Airport (HHN) and Erfurt Airport (ERF) in Germany. As an EASA Part-145/Part-147 organization, HAITEC holds the FAA approval, as well as approvals from Civil Aviation Organizations of Aruba, Azerbaijan, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Russia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), allowing the company to service a broad range of Boeing and Airbus, as well as Gulfstream aircraft.
