Kuwaiti low-cost airline, Jazeera Airways, has inked an agreement with Airbus for components support for up to 29 A320ceos and A320neos aircraft, as part of the Airbus Flight Hour Services (FHS).
The agreement was signed during the Dubai Airshow 2019 by chairman, Jazeera Airways, Marwan Boodai and chief commercial officer, Airbus, Christian Scherer.
Airbus will manage components services which will cover pool, on-site stock at main base, warehousing, logistics, component maintenance service and engineering.
Boodai stated: “We are pleased to be expanding our relationship with Airbus, which started in 2004, enabling us today to benefit from world-class services to maintain our operational excellence. The new support service will ensure efficient and effective availability of spare parts for our young and growing fleet, in turn improving reliability and further improving our already excellent on-time performance.”
Senior vice president, Airbus Services, Remi Maillard commented: “We are very pleased to welcome Jazeera Airways as a new member of our FHS programme. Leveraging our extensive global components logistics infrastructure and real-time spares inventory visibility, coupled with our engineering know-how, we look forward to working together to help achieve the highest reliability and on-time performance of Jazeera’s fleet operations.”
