MHIRJ Aviation Group becomes a new ACI-LAC World Business Partner

Panama, April 26, 2021 – Airports Council International Latin America and the Caribbean welcomes MHIRJ Aviation Group (MHIRJ) as its newest World Business Partner (WBP).

Their extensive network of Service Centers, Support Offices and Parts Depots are positioned in important aviation hubs around the world.

As a company that provides support and access to the largest regional aircraft maintenance network in the world, they are an integral part of our aviation ecosystem and the recovery. I am confident that this membership will be of mutual benefit and will allow us to strengthen the development of the aviation industry in the region”.

MHIRJ, with their recent expansion, is a company that can contribute greatly to improved access to consultancy services and new technologies that help airports to ensure a safe, secure and sustainable operation. This is essential in the current recovery.

We are very pleased that MHIRJ has joined our community of World Business Partners, and we believe they will benefit from this outstanding global platform, building a network of new contacts and exploring new business opportunities.”
