Etihad Airways Engineering to host AE&M Conference in Abu Dhabi


Etihad Airways Engineering will be the host sponsor of MRO Network’s upcoming Airline Engineering & Maintenance: Middle East conference, taking place in Abu Dhabi on April 26-27, 2016.

Exploring MRO growth is at the heart of the discussions at this conference which has a 20-year history of gathering key stakeholders in the MRO value chain – airlines, OEMs, MROs and suppliers – to network and discuss a range of aftermarket issues.

Topics range from the developments in the Middle East Air Transport Market, an MRO industry forecast and how airlines engage with their MRO partners and suppliers.

Among the industry leading speakers is Jeff Wilkinson, Etihad Airways’ Senior Vice President, Technical, who said: “It is our pleasure to host delegates of Airline Engineering & Maintenance in Abu Dhabi – the emerging hub of aerospace and aviation in the Middle East.” 

Off the back off a successful show last year, Etihad Airways Engineering will once again be holding a tour of its facility exclusively for conference delegates at the conclusion of the conference, introducing delegates to the Etihad Airways Engineering management team and offering the opportunity to visit hangars and various workshops within the facility.

“We are organising an escorted tour of Etihad Airways Engineering state-of-the-art workshops and hangars, one of the largest MRO facilities in the region. This will include Hangar 6 which accommodates up to three A380 aircraft simultaneously.”
