According to China Airlines Chairman, Ho Nuan-hsuan, the government has designated the aviation industry as one of the key components of the “5+2 Industrial Innovation Plan”. The new aircraft maintenance joint venture will help to kick-start the aerospace industry in Taiwan. Apart from the boost it will give to the components and parts industry, it should also energize related manufacturing industries as well. This will in turn lead to new market opportunities and closer links between the domestic and overseas aerospace industries.

NORDAM holds a 51% share in the joint venture while China Airlines holds 49%. The maintenance facility will be built Taoyuan International Airport’s Zhongzheng section.

The facility is expected to be completed and commissioned by mid-2019 to provide thrust reverser and composite material maintenance services to the Asia region.
