This is due to the growing need to increase competitiveness at the expense of the business combination, the use on board the aircraft entertainment system and mobile communication Wi-Fi. In addition, operators are looking to reduce operating costs associated with the servicing of aircraft. In the design and development of new aircraft began to use more composite materials, which provides a significant reduction in the weight of the aircraft. There is a replacement of engines on more energy-efficient models to save fuel in the amount of 10-15%.



The modernization of the air fleet involves many regional companies. For example, Timco, opened a new service center for brands such planes as Embraer CRJ 145, Embraer E 170 /E 190, Bombardier CRJ 200/700/900With an emphasis on reconstruction and modernization. Significantly expanded the program to modernize the aircraft fleet, if you previously performed the same type of aircraft modernization, but now the program includes several different types of aircraft.
