emerging uae airline rak airways entrusts full pbh support to A J WALTER AVIATIOn
RAK Airways chooses AJW to deliver operational efficiencies for growth.
A J Walter Aviation, London, 20th September 2011: A J Walter Aviation, the largest independent aircraft spares support provider, continues to develop its business in the Middle East with another service contract, this time with a national carrier of the UAE, RAK Airways. The airline has awarded AJW a three year contract to provide full power-by-the-hour and MBK lease support for its A320 fleet.
AJW already has comprehensive Boeing 737 stock sited in its regional facility in the Dubai Free Zone which supports daily spares requirements for local airlines. This new contract will be managed out of its Middle-East office and will include the additional location in Dubai of extensive A320 inventory, which will mark a significant increase in AJW’s investment in the UAE. RAK Airways will also benefit from AJW’s highly regarded 24/7 AOG service across its route network including Cairo, Jeddah, Doha, Calicut, Dhaka and Chittagong – all countries in which AJW has considerable operational experience.
“Ras Al Khaimah presents compelling business opportunities for A J Walter Aviation. The Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone is already one of the fastest growing free trade zones in the UAE and home to over 4,000 companies. AJW’s cost effective services together with extensive operational experience perfectly positions us to expand in Ras Al Khaimah and the wider UAE. We look forward to forging successful, long term relationships with airlines like RAK Airways,” said Oliver Smith, Regional Director of A J Walter Aviation.
This power-by-the-hour agreement brings the aircraft that AJW has under contract to over 375 and it is evidence of the Company’s continuing determination to succeed in the Middle East. AJW is keen to work with more airlines in the region who want to win competitive advantage by choosing flexible and cost-effective commercial and operational support.
