AJW Group has been awarded a power-by-the-hour (PBH) component support agreement with Dominican Republic’s new flagship airline Arajet.
The PBH support agreement will cover Arajet’s expanding fleet of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, with AJW offering its flight hour support programme. Tailored to the operator’s needs, it guarantees the supply, repair, and overhaul of rotable components, underpinned by AJW’s global inventory of 737 MAX spares and MRO services from the group’s flagship maintenance facility, AJW Technique, in Montreal.
Earlier this month, AJW announced its commitment to capability expansions in the Americas by joining the Latin American and Caribbean Air Transport Association (ALTA) as an affiliate member.
“At Arajet we are committed to providing our customers with a safe, reliable, and efficient travel experience,” said Arajet’s chief operating officer Garret Malone (pictured below). “Our partnership with AJW gives us assurance and cost alignment underpinning safety, flight efficiency and on-time-performance allowing us to focus on achieving our rapid growth plans safe in the knowledge that their experienced team will keep our fleet running effectively and efficiently.”
AJW Group’s chairman Christopher Whiteside (pictured top) commented: “We are delighted to announce this power-by-the-hour contract with Arajet, who place the utmost importance on regularity of services and on-time performance, values we share. This contract echoes the recent expansion of our services in Latin America and follows hotly on the heels of a 10-year PBH support contract with Chilean ultra-low-cost carrier JetSMART Airlines in July.”
