VAS to acquire two more Airbus narrowbody airframes from Avolon for teardown

VAS Aero Services is to acquire two additional Airbus narrowbody airframes from Avolon Aerospace Leasing.

The agreement represents an expansion of the January 2022 consignment agreement between the two companies under which VAS acquired three Avolon A320 family airframes for teardown.

The two additional airframes are an Airbus A319-100 (MSN 2362) and an A320-100 (MSN 2299).

The used serviceable materials (USM) from both teardowns will augment VAS’ aftermarket parts inventory, distributed through the company’s worldwide airline operator customer base.

The teardown of both aircraft will be performed in Hondo, Texas in the US in early 2023.

“VAS has established an enviable reputation as a technical and market leader in Airbus aircraft teardowns and USM sales,” said VAS’ CEO Tommy Hughes. “The expansion of our consignment and disassembly agreement with Avolon Aerospace is further evidence of those capabilities.

“As our relationship with Avolon continues to strengthen, we are grateful for their confidence in our ability to deliver superior results that help operators and lessors realise the full residual value of their assets.”
