Airbus has signed a memorandum of understanding with the city of Chengdu and Tarmac Aerosave for the development of the first aircraft “lifecycle” service center in China. This agreement will cover a range of activities from aircraft parking and storage, to maintenance, upgrades, conversions, dismantling and recycling services for various aircraft types.
