Air Works, the preeminent independent provider of aviation services and major maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) in India, has forged a strategic partnership with Siris Aircraft Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (SAMRO) to deliver line maintenance services at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), the largest international airport in Nepal. SAMRO, the first private and independent Approved Maintenance Organisation in Nepal, holds the 145 Approval from the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal.
Air Works will offer certifying personnel and maintenance engineers to clear the aircraft, in addition to overseeing business development, while SAMRO will offer its state-of-the-art facility to provide line maintenance services to leading airlines from across the world. This extension of Air Works’ operational footprint in Nepal builds on the company’s decade-long legacy of establishing strong customer relationships based on trust, reliability, mutual understanding, and cooperation.
International passenger traffic in Nepal has rebounded to nearly pre-COVID levels, recording a staggering 141% increase from 2021, primarily driven by gains in tourism. Against this backdrop, Air Works’ expansion in the SAARC region is timely, given the revival of air traffic and the enhancement of aviation infrastructure in Nepal. With over 30 leading international airlines flying to/from TIA, the station connects passengers to more than 45 destinations throughout Asia and the Middle East.
