Posted 13 May 2016 · Add Comment

AAR has extended its presence in Africa with a contract to provide power-by-the-hour (PBH) component inventory management and repair services to Fastjet.

The contract covers management of components and repairs of Fastjet’s A319 airframes.
 
AAR will use its primary parts pool in Brussels and its digital supply chain for parts procurement, and use its predictive-maintenance software to ensure the rights parts arrive when needed in order to minimise aircraft-on-ground-time.
 
“As Fastjet expands, it needs a reliable fleet and a partner that can help minimize maintenance costs. Fastjet recognized that AAR has the bandwidth and expertise to access parts and perform repairs with maximum efficiency and effectiveness,” said Deepak Sharma, president, AAR international supply chain.
