EgyptAir Maintenance and Engineering has opened up to the African and Asian markets within aircraft maintenance and overhaul.

It has contracted with Zimbabwe's national carrier; Air Zimbabwe, to carry out heavy maintenance tasks for one of its Boeing B737-800 aircraft. Another Asian customer is Kam Air, an Afghani carrier, where the Egyptian service provider provides overhaul for its Airbus A340.

Abou Taleb Tawfik, chairman of EgyptAir Maintenance and Engineering said that the company plans to attract more third party customers to increase profit. He added: “The international accreditations are the basis of providing technical service to the third party customers and helps bring more contracts with new customers domestically and internationally and in various domestic and international stations. The company seeks to maintain such accreditations through the on-going inspections of the international bodies to renew the certificates and approvals; European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) inspection was the last audit during the month of April, which included the company's headquarters in Cairo and the stations of Burj Al Arab in Alexandria and Sharm el-Sheikh.”
