TUI eyes Slovenia for MRO facility


TUI Airlines Engineering, the maintenance and engineering arm of the TUI Airlines Group, recently engaged in further discussions with the Slovenian government, building on a prior meeting held in October. The Slovenian Ministry for Infrastructure said, “Similar to the previous meeting, which took place on October 3, 2023, TUI held a presentation of their company,putting an emphasis on cooperation with the aim of setting up an aviation maintenance organisation (MRO) in Slovenia. The company intends to expand its aircraft maintenance activities in the coming years, so Slovenia is of potential interest to them. During their previous meeting, TUI expressed interest in building and operating a maintenance base at Maribor’s Edvard Rusjan Airport. TUI Airlines Engineering provides maintenance, repair and overhaul services to the airline group's combined fleet of over 140 aircraft.

    Would be great to have them in Slovenia; maybe they could operate some routes too

      Exactly and sell some holiday packages with Krvavec, Rogla, etc. or even Austrian ski resorts .

      That's right. Jet2 also is good idea for this type of flights, Slovenia have big potential for ski flights. Aeroflot was the main carrier of this.

    Great news for Maribor, I feel like they have a good labour force pool for it and are still “cheap enough” for a facility like that. Hopefully the deal materialises.

    Summertime MAN-LJU flights would be ideal!

    This feels like it could be salvation for Maribor Airport, considering it might be its only viable model for operations
