IATA Sees MRO Costs Increasing, Despite New Techniques
from Aviation Week
Innovation in MRO techniques, new maintenance-stingy aircraft and more durable engines and components notwithstanding, maintenance spending appears to be increasing slightly, even on a unit basis. According to the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Airline Maintenance Cost Executive Commentary, direct maintenance cost per flight hour increased 12 percent in nominal terms from 2010 to 2014, or about 1.7 percent annually in real terms.
