To strengthen its presence in the MRO market in Asia Pacific, where it has clients including Cebu Pacific, Lion Air, Asian Wings and Yangon Airways, ITP has opened a new representative office in Singapore.
From its new office, the company believes it will have a closer relationship with its clients and thus provide better and more efficient customer support. Also, with Singapore being a key aviation industry hub, ITP will be able to reinforce its commercial reach in the region.
The Asia-Pacific region is the area with the largest number of Pratt & Whitney Canada’s PW100 engine operators, for which ITP is a Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF), covering all the large family models. PW100 family engines in the Asia-Pacific currently amount to 25% of the worldwide fleet and are expected to reach 33% of the global market by 2025.
José Luis Zubeldia, head of the ITP in-service support business unit, remarked, "The new Singapore office will help us to improve customer support, and also put us in a better position to pursue new business opportunities in the area.”
