Russia’s largest air carrier Aeroflot has set up a new subsidiary called A-Technics. Registered on December 7, the company will provide maintenance, repair, and overhaul services on the carrier’s aircraft and engines. Another of Aeroflot’s subsidiaries, Aeroflot-Finance, is listed as the new organization’s founder and 100% owner.

A-Technics will be based at Vnukovo Airport, home to the maintenance center of Aeroflot’s former rival Transaero Airlines. Mikhail Korobovich, formerly Transaero’s technical director, has been appointed as the new company’s head. Aeroflot declined to comment on possible further links between A-Technics and personnel or assets of its now-defunct competitor, noting, however, that some (out of around 1,500) Transaero engineering and technical staff “will be involved in the new MRO structure”.

Aeroflot’s board of directors approved the creation of A-Technics at the end of October; the decision was announced on October 29, three days after the revocation of Transaero’s air operator certificate. The new center is understood to be aimed at providing MRO services on all of Aeroflot Group’s aircraft, including the fleets of Aeroflot’s subsidiary carriers.
