AJW Group has been selected by Aer Lingus to be its supply chain management provider.
As part of the ‘repair cycle management’ agreement, AJW Group will perform data analysis and offer assistance on component engineering services for the Irish flag carrier’s fleet of A320 family and A330 aircraft. It will also provide repair and logistical support.
The contract covers the majority of airframe and engine LRUs and includes new A321neo aircraft.
AJW said it would offer a sophisticated system integration with Aer Lingus’ ‘AMOS’ system, delivering a supply chain solution that will “drive superior performance and operational excellence”.
AJW will work closely with Aer Lingus’ engineering teams, while its MRO facility AJW Technique will play a significant role in the new contract with a “high degree of capability of the contracted coverage” of Aer Lingus components.
Explaining Aer Lingus’ decision to select AJW, director of maintenance Dominic Ryan said: “Aer Lingus has a long-standing relationship with AJW. With a strong partner in AJW, known for its global supply chain excellence and innovation, we are confident that this partnership will support our key focus on safety, efficiency and operational excellence.”
AJW Group chief sales officer Tom De Geytere commented: “We are delighted that Aer Lingus has chosen AJW as their complete supply chain management provider. With many years of excellent relations, we are delighted to have signed a contract together. The partnership testifies our excellence in supporting such dynamic supply chain solutions with our airline partners and cements AJW’s position as the market leader on the A320ceo and neo platform.”
