Dornier Technology gains three line maintenance contracts

Dornier Technology has won line maintenance contracts from three Korean low-cost carriers: Air Busan, Air Seoul and Jeju Air.

The Philippine MRO company said it had benefited from the sudden improvement in passenger traffic from Korea, with all three airlines resuming services to the Philippines.

Air Busan is operating using Airbus A320 and A321 from Seoul Incheon to Kalibo, the gateway to the resort island of Boracay, Philippines. Air Seoul is also serving the route using A321s; Whereas Jeju Air is operating from Seoul Incheon to Panglao International Airport in Bohol using a Boeing 737-800.

Joseph Espiritu, chief operating officer of Dornier Technology, noted that the Philippine market was too strong for the Korean carrier due to its popularity as a leisure destination near the Korean peninsula. Many Koreans also live in the Philippines.

“We serve many international and domestic airline customers,” Espiritu said. “We have achieved cost savings through ‘economies of scale’ and we have been able to pass those savings on to our customers, making us a very competitive line maintenance organization.

“The depth and breadth of experience in Dornier technology means we can serve airlines operating a wide variety of aircraft. We can also provide value-added services such as warehousing and logistics for aircraft parts .

Dornier Technology has approximately 200 employees and plans to increase its workforce to 250 by the end of the year to complement the growth of its line and base maintenance business. The company does airframe heavy maintenance at Clark International Airport outside Manila.

The company has nine line maintenance stations: Bohol, Cataclan, Cebu, Clark, Davao, Iloilo, Kalibo, Manila and Puerto Princesa. It plans to open a tenth line station this year and build 15 line stations in the Philippines by the end of 2025.
