Ameco is to deliver a Boeing 747 of ACT Airlines for C-check in this December. It has been the fourth ACT aircraft since this year.

"The Middle East market is of great potential, and we have kept focus on it for many years", says Zhu Xiao, Chief Marketing Officer of new Ameco. "We keep good relationship with many Middle East carriers for business such as airframe overhaul, line maintenance, engine and components, and business jet, etc."

New Ameco gives great importance to the Middle East market and customers, and its capacities, capabilities and resources have been promoted via integration. The stable economy exchange between the Middle East and China lays a strong foundation for MRO business, says Zhu.

The MRO specialist is well experienced in providing modifications on Boeing 737, 747, 767, 777 and Airbus A330, A340, A380 with a portfolio of cabin, system, winglet and wing.
