As western airframers elbow each other to meet Uganda Airlines’ near-term fleet requirements, Chinese aviation infrastructure major Aviation Industries Corporation of China (AVIC) is pursuing a different strategy. AVIC is instead seeking to unseat SAMCO Aircraft Maintenance Netherlands as the MRO provider for the carrier’s fleet of Mitsubishi CRJ-900s.

A Chinese delegation was in Uganda recently to meet Uganda Airlines management. However, instead of pitching the ARJ-21 as had been largely anticipated, AVIC instead submitted proposals for taking on maintenance of the CRJ-900s.
