AAR has been awarded an extension to its power-by-the-hour (PBH) component support contract with Volotea.
The partnership started in 2016 with four A319 aircraft and Volotea’s fleet has grown to nearly 40 aircraft today.
The agreement includes the positioning of main base kits at Volotea’s operating bases throughout Europe, access to AAR’s component pool inventory from logistic centres in Europe and the management of the component repair cycle.
“Following a selection process that prioritised value and reliability, we are excited to confirm AAR as the provider for component services for our fleet of A320 family aircraft,” said Volotea’s COO Isidre Porqueras. “We look forward to having AAR in support of the next phase of our growth.”
AAR’s vice president integrated solutions Nicholas Gross commented: “We are honoured to extend this successful partnership with Volotea. Our proven ability to provide European component and logistic support across Volotea’s rapidly evolving and growing network of 17 operating bases and operations to over 100 cities was key to this extension.”
