Kenya's Ministry of Defence has selected Global Aerospace Logistics (GAL) – part of the new Abu Dhabi-based Edge Group to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services to the Kenya Air Force.

Khalid Al Breiki, CEO of GAL, made the announcement on the sidelines of the Dubai Airshow. 
The framework agreement for logistics and maintenance involves the provision of spares, logistics support, MRO and other aviation-related requirements to the Kenya Air Force fleet. 
Speaking on the signing, HE Tareq Abdul Raheem Al Hosani, chairman of GAL, said: “This contract marks the start of a long-term relationship that will see GAL play a critical role in Kenya Air Force’s primary mission of securing Kenyan airspace.”
GAL is part of the Platforms & Systems cluster of Edge, the advanced technology company for defence and beyond that was inaugurated earlier this month. 
In partnership with the world’s largest OEMs and MRO service providers – such as AAR, Airbus Helicopters, Bell, Pratt & Whitney, Boeing and Leonardo – the company helps its clients achieve exceptional fleet readiness.
