Airbus Military has announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) to establish a joint company in Turkey.

The MoU, announced on 28 June, will see the companies provide in-service support (ISS) services for the A400M aircraft ordered by Turkey with the potential to provide services to other A400M users in the future.

The company, called Airbus Military Turkey (AMTR), will be jointly owned by TAI and Airbus Military and operated at a mutually agreed location in Turkey to be decided. The next stage of the discussions will focus on the definition of the organizational structure of AMTR as well as determining the capital requirements of AMTR.
