GMF AeroAsia is an international company that employs 2,500 employees based in Jakarta, Indonesia. It services airplanes of many types and is one of the largest aircraft maintenance facility in Asia.
Before 2000 (millennium year)
The company was established in 1984 as Garuda Maintenance Facilities Support Center. In seven years, funded entirely by the Indonesian government, it had spent US$200 million, of which 63% was used to import hi-tech machinery and equipment. In 1996, it became a SBU changing its name to Garuda Maintenance Facilities AeroAsia, or GMF AeroAsia in short.
In January 2007, PT Garuda Indonesia announced it would sell a minority stake of GMF AeroAsia in April 2007. Other subsidiaries, PT Aerowisata, PT Abacus Distribution System and PT Gapura Angkasa would be sold completely as Garuda Indonesia does not consider them as "core business". GMF AeroAsia has recently concluded a restructuring as part of the company's strategic development visions embodied in ‘The Global Challenge’, a fifteen-year ‘voyage’ plan.
In September 2008, KLM attempted to buy shares in GMF, but were turned down. The intention is to release the shares publicly and KLM were told they were free to buy shares at that point. GMF AeroAsia's biggest clients are parent Garuda followed by Lion Air, but Lion hopes to eventually take maintenance upon itself.
All of its facilities are at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. They comprise 480,000 m2 of built-up structures, including three hangars, a spares warehouse, workshops, utility buildings, ground support equipment building, chemical stores, engine test cell and management offices. In addition, GMF AeroAsia has an apron capable of handling up to 50 aircraft, taxiways, a run-up bay and a waste treatment area taking up a 1,150,000 m2 area.
Hangar 1 was built in 1991 designed for Boeing 747s, has two full docks and is 22,000 m2. It can perform Section 41 Modification, replace and strengthen body skin, frame stringer, intercostal and several selected structure in Nose Section 41 area. Hangar 2 is 23,000 m2 and has 3 aircraft bays. It can perform minor A and B checks. It can hold up to one narrow body and one wide body jet. Hangar 3 is 23,000 m2. It normally holds up to 3 narrow body aircraft, but can be reconfigured to hold up to one wide body and one narrowbody. It has 7 bays with 4 full docks. It has 6 roof-mounted cranes and has one bay designed for MD11's, DC10's, and wide Airbus aircraft. On October 2011, GMF are in the process of building Hangar 4 with a capacity of 16 narrow-body aircraft on a 18,000 square-meter plot of land, is equipped with a purpose-built docking platform for heavy maintenance of narrow body aircraft and it will be operational in 2012. Hangar 5, which would handle 4 wide-body aircraft will be completed in either 2013 or 2014.
AeroAsia also provides certain assets of OEMs, located in a customs bonded area at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. Customers can get anything from this storage warehouse with a computerized system.
