A J WALTER AVIATION launches new global corporate aircraft spares support service
A suite of maintenance and spare parts support programmes for Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) and Airbus Corporate Jetliner (ACJ) operators, specifically developed by the leading independent specialist in the supply, repair and lease of commercial aircraft spare parts.Miami, April 12th, 2011: A J Walter Aviation is partnering with Loudoun Aviation, the internationally recognised business jet dealer based near Washington DC, to deliver spares support excellence to the corporate sector. Offering a range of 24/7 AOG, power-by-the-hour, pooling and daily service options, AJW is able to support corporate operators of ACJ and BBJ aircraft, as well as all Boeing corporate conversions. Combined, AJW and Loudoun offer almost a century of valuable experience to provide specialist world class services to owners and operators of larger cabin long range business jets tailored to their unique flight profiles.
These programmes will immediately deliver tangible and measurable advantages. BBJ and ACJ operators are able to benefit from the flexible financial advantages currently enjoyed by AJW’s commercial customers across a wide range of support services, and the Company’s strategic stock held in conveniently located hubs around the world including Miami, LA, Memphis, London, Dubai and Singapore.
AJW and Loudoun Aviation will ensure that, with immediate effect, ACJ and BBJ owners and operators can enjoy the buying power and economies of scale that airlines experience.
“Traditionally these operators have been locked in to engine manufacturer maintenance programmes and it is evident that AJW’s products, in particular pool access to their comprehensive spares inventories, will be of tremendous interest” says Susan Kopacz, Partner in Loudoun Aviation, who is responsible for marketing this new AJW service to the VIP sector.
Christopher Whiteside, President of A J Walter Aviation, explains why the Company believes the opportunity to optimise and more accurately predict running costs will resonate with BBJ and ACJ owners and why AJW sees such growth potential in this niche sector. “Since 2008, corporate aviation has experienced a worldwide decline in new and pre-owned sales due to the global recession. The past six to twelve months have seen encouraging signs of improvement, however we have noticed that owners who would traditionally change their aircraft more frequently are retaining them for longer. This means that strong and financially secure corporate flight departments will want to ensure complete peace of mind when it comes to maintenance of what they consider to be ‘older’ aircraft in their fleet, and have a clear idea of operational costs.”
AJW’s core expertise focuses on helping our customers simplify the management of their spares. “Globally we employ more than 200 staff with extensive multilingual capabilities and provide a 24/7 service to over 700 customers in more than 100 countries. Our intention is to deliver a preferential service that will completely transform the long range corporate sector.”
