Turkish Technic and Havelsan have established a joint venture (JV) company to produce in-flight entertainment and internet service provider systems.
The joint venture will also be active in the field of other software used in civil aviation including design, production, maintenance, repair, marketing, sales and after-sales services in land, sea, rail systems and air platforms.
The company is aiming to provide linefit in-flight entertainment systems as approved supplier for both Turkish Airlines’ new generation aircraft to be delivered between 2022-2023 and other domestic and international airlines’ aircrafts.
Operating out of Turkish Technics’ Sabiha Gökçen International Airport facilities in 2018, the company is planning to commercialise its products for domestic airline operators and other operators within the close region.
“Besides our comprehensive maintenance and repair capabilities and our high quality aircraft galley and aircraft seat producer JV’s, we are pleased to operate in the in-flight entertainment market through our joint venture company to be established with Havelsan. I believe that this step will create many opportunities for both parties and also customers,” said Ahmet Karaman, CEO of Turkish Technic.
Ahmet Hamdi Atalay, CEO of Havelsan, said “Havelsan has demonstrated its claim in civilian aerospace as well as defence technologies. The joint venture company by Havelsan and Turkish Technic will increase Turkey’s civil aviation export and combining our forces will enable us to reach global markets.”
