A new Lithuanian MRO is in discussions with Israel Aerospace Industries to either partner or establish non-competing businesses at the same airport in the Baltic country.

The airport, Šiauliai International, is a civilian and military airport located near Lithuanian’s fourth largest city. Neither company would provide any further details of the discussions.

Aviatic is in the process of building a hangar and plans to offer “full-service operations” for Airbus A320 and Boeing 737s—including D checks and asset management--in 2021. In the meantime as it ramps up, it is offering parking services and small-scale repairs that don’t require a hangar. 

Aviatic is investing 20 million Euros to create its new MRO services.
