Starting in 2017, state-owned aircraft manufacture PT Dirgantara Indonesia (DI) will maintain Saudi Arabian military helicopters and aircraft.

“We are still processing the contract,” Brig. Gen Jan Pieter Ate, the Defense Ministry’s director of the defense industry and technology, told The Jakarta Post on Friday.

Jan said DI was among defense companies in Indonesia ready to offer maintenance services for foreign military helicopters and airplanes.

“We have a good track record in cooperation with Airbus and the ability to produce aircraft for foreign countries,” he said.

DI previously provided maintenance services for Columbian and Panamanian aircraft. (evi)
