Eve explores MRO and eVTOL reassembly with Saudia Technic
They will examine not only MRO activities, which are essential to ensure safety, reliability and profitability, but also address the logistical challenges Eve will face in delivering its eVTOL to customers in the region.

Eve Air Mobility and Saudia Technic are to explore the potential demand for MRO activities from eVTOL aircraft in the Middle East, specifically eVTOL MRO training and the evaluation of the infrastructure requirements and processes for the potential reassembly of Eve's eVTOL in Saudi Arabia.

"We are delighted about the collaboration with Saudia Technic, which will support the introduction and scalability of eVTOL operations in the Middle East," says Eve CEO Johann Bordais. "This allows us to examine not only MRO activities, which are essential to ensure safety, reliability and profitability, but also to address the logistical challenges we have in delivering our eVTOL to our customers in the region."

Fahd Cynndy, CEO of Saudia Technic, adds: "This is in perfect harmony with the Saudi Vision 2030, as it aims to establish Saudia Technic and Eve as leaders in the air mobility sector in Saudi Arabia and the broader Middle East. By adopting cutting-edge technologies and seamlessly incorporating them into their operations, they are defining a new benchmark for aviation excellence in the region."

During a signing ceremony at Future Aviation Forum in Riyadh, Saudia Technic head of commercial Ramy Nasralla stressed the strategic fit of its agreement with Eve Air Mobility with the company's vision and national aviation strategy. He highlighted the transformative impact of its MRO++ approach, which modernises maintenance practices with a comprehensive solution covering all aspects of aircraft maintenance. Through initiatives like ST Nova, Saudia Technic boosts its service capabilities and paves the way for future innovations. Nasralla emphasised the double '+' in MRO++, symbolising the company's commitment to global integration and Saudia Technic's regional and global expansion aspirations, positioning itself as a major player in the international MRO arena.

Last year, Eve revealed the location of its first eVTOL production facility in Taubaté, Brazil. Currently, the company is assembling its first full-scale eVTOL prototype, which will be followed by a comprehensive test campaign. With letters of intent for nearly 3,000 eVTOLs, Eve is poised to significantly impact the advanced air mobility industry globally.

Eve has also been developing solutions to support its customers from day one, from services and support to network optimisation with Vector, its urban air traffic management software designed to safely address the unique air traffic and network management challenges of current and future AAM operations, focusing on fleet and vertiport operators, and future service providers for AAM, including air navigation service providers.
