Habom Goes Into Service
CONTINUOUSLY DEVELOPING AND RENEWING ITSELF, TURKISH AIRLINES IS MOVING CONFIDENTLY AHEAD TO EVEN BIGGER GOALS. THE LATEST INDICATOR OF THIS IS THE HABOM PROJECT.
Internationally recognized for its expertise in aircraft maintenance and repair, Turkish Technic is a 100% Turkish Airlines-owned subsidiary. Turkish Technic aims to be one of the leading players in the field of maintenance and repair and has taken a significant step toward that goal with its launch of the HABOM project.
HABOM, which has gone into service at Sabiha Gökçen Airport, is an operational center of excellence. Fitted with state-of-the-art modern maintenance equipment and technology, HABOM is able to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul services simultaneously for 11 narrow body aircraft in its narrow body aircraft hangar and for 3 wide body aircraft in the wide body aircraft hangar at the 380,000-square-meter facility. The facility’s annex also includes a large number of shops for maintenance and repair of numerous components such as landing gear and APU.
HABOM, which was opened on June 27 by Turkey’s distinguished Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, was realized with an investment of around 550 million USD. Turkish Airlines has invested a near total of 750 million USD in aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul as well as in production of aircraft seats and galleys since 2006.
Underlying the comfort and safety of both our own passengers and those of airlines on four continents, Turkish Technic is going to further strengthen its world market position through HABOM.
