Airbus to Open Military Maintenance Facilities in Mexico

MEXICO CITY – European plane maker Airbus plans to install military maintenance facilities in Mexico this year in conjunction with that nation’s armed forces, company executives said.

The main goal will be to service a fleet of 20 Airbus planes owned by Mexico’s army and navy, the commercial director of Airbus’s Defence and Space division, Antonio Rodriguez, said Thursday at a press conference.

To that end, the Blagnac, France-based company is training Mexican military personnel to begin servicing Airbus CN235 and C295 aircraft later this year.

“This isn’t about launching a business, but rather creating a network of maintenance centers that facilitates repairing aircraft in a short time and at a lower cost,” the Spanish executive said.

Javier Garcia, representative of Airbus Defence and Space in Mexico, said the company is looking to install the facilities at the Santa Lucia air base in the central state of Mexico and the Tapachula naval air base in the southeastern state of Chiapas.
