IFS, the global enterprise applications company, and Domodedovo Technique Company Limited, one of the leading maintenance and reengineering service centers of foreign aircraft in Domodedovo Moscow International Airport, have signed an agreement to implement a Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) management system.

In 2007, the independent research company Skytrax rated Moscow International Airport Domodedovo as one of the three best airports of Central and Eastern Europe.
“International and domestic competition in the aviation industry, coupled with rigid international aircraft maintenance quality standards and regulations, required the implementation of an MRO management information system.
