GoAir to tie up with Singapore Airlines

Mumbai: GoAir expects to finalise its proposed partnership with Singapore Airlines to set up a chain of MRO (maintenance, repair and overhauling) facilities in India in the next two months.
Jeh Wadia, Managing Director of the company, told presspersons that the joint venture will set up between eight and 12 MRO facilities. These facilities will be able to cater to the maintenance requirements of both Airbus and Boeing aircraft, apart from all wide-bodied aircraft.
The idea is to leverage the low cost of engineering services in India by setting up an engineering facility under Go Engineering. After the restructuring, the Wadia family has created a common holding company, Go Holdings.
