Jazeera Airways has signed an agreement with Airbus Services at Dubai Airshow to provide components support for up to 29 A320ceos and A320neos aircraft as part of the Airbus Flight Hour Services (FHS). The Kuwait-based carrier is the first FHS customer in Middle-East and marks FHS growing success with 29 customers worldwide representing close to 750 aircraft.
Airbus Flight Hour Services has been generating value for its customers over the past 10 years with a service portfolio that provides airlines with a customised offer, ranging from components supply and repair to full line and airframe maintenance and engineering. Airbus FHS has six main supply pools around the world: in Singapore, London, Hong Kong, São Paulo, Kuala Lumpur and Miami, as well as dedicated onsite stock locations close to customer bases, including operationally critical parts. This global presence allows Airbus to deliver components in a seamless and timely manner, regardless of where they are needed. With this agreement, Airbus will manage components services which will cover: pool, on-site stock at main base, warehousing, logistics, component maintenance service, and engineering.
Remi Maillard, SVP of Airbus Services said, “We are very pleased to welcome Jazeera Airways as a new member of our FHS programme. Leveraging our extensive global components logistics infrastructure and real-time spares inventory visibility, coupled with our engineering know-how, we look forward to working together to help achieve the highest reliability and on-time performance of Jazeera’s fleet operations.”
Jazeera Airways Chairman, Marwan Boodai, Boodai said, “We are pleased to be expanding our relationship with Airbus which started in 2004, enabling us today to benefit from world-class services to maintain our operational excellence. The new support service will ensure efficient and effective availability of spare parts for our young and growing fleet, in turn improving reliability and further improving our already excellent on-time performance.”
Jazeera Airways currently has a fleet of 11 Airbus aircraft made up of nine Airbus A320-200 aircraft and two Airbus A320neo aircraft. Jazeera prepares to take delivery of two additional A320neo aircraft by the end of 2019 to bring their total fleet size to thirteen aircraft.
