Mexico-based line maintenance specialist Aviation Integrated Services Group (AISG) is to grow its network of stations after entering a strategic association between its wholly owned Icelandic company SO Tech Aviation Services and Argentina-based Condor Aviation Services (CAS). 

According to AISG, the joint venture agreement will increase its served network at airports in Argentina to include Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Mendoza and Bariloche. Once established, there is the possibility of further international openings.

Following the agreement, the number of AISG airport will surpass 40 line stations at locations in the Dominican Republic, Argentina and Iceland with more than 70 global airlines as customers.

AISG has been operating for 15 years after forming in 2004. Its SO Tech subsidiary was founded in 2008 and received its EASA Part 145 approval in January 2009. 

Fernando Nieto, AISG Group’s CEO, says the new agreement is part of an overall growth strategy for the company, which has its corporate headquarters in Cancun, Mexico. 

“This exciting new joint venture agreement will allow our group to offer high quality line maintenance services with both Argentine ANAC and SO Tech’s EASA approvals,” he says. Nieto adds that as the service and quality standards will be standardized across the group companies, carriers will be able to obtain the same services at all AISG, SO Tech and CAS stations.
