AerFin is to take delivery of a 777-300ER, expanding its spare parts portfolio and the aftermarket solutions it can offer.
The aircraft is currently being dismantled in Tarbes, France by Tarmac Aerospace, and will provide AerFin with a stock of 777-300ER material.
AerFin said it would be able to target an “increasingly global customer base”, and noted the 777-300ER’s high utilisation rates relative to other widebody aircraft.
The 777-300ER “will remain a crucial asset for passenger and cargo traffic on high-demand long-haul routes”, AerFin said.
“This project is significant in many ways,” said AerFin’s SVP commercial and asset management Auvinash Narayen.
“Not only is it the first 777-300ER aircraft to join the AerFin portfolio but it also enables us to further support our valued Boeing customer base with sustainable, cost-effective aftermarket solutions at a time when they so badly need it.”
