Both domestic and foreign aircraft will be serviced, however, the center will primarily focus on Sukhoi Superjet 100, Irkut MC-21 and large commercial airplanes produced by Airbus, Bombardier, and Boeing.

Technodinamika has accumulated extensive experience in the organization of aircraft maintenance and repair processes, while cooperation with Italy's Atitech will strengthen its position in this market and expand its presence in the Moscow region, where the demand for MRO is the highest in Russia,” Director General of Rostec corporation, Sergei Chemezov, was quoted as saying.

Also, along with the facility being built near Moscow, Russian specialists will be trained at the Atitech training center in Naples.
