MONTREAL, May 16 /PRNewswire/ - Aveos is pleased to announce that it has signed a five (5) year contract with ABC Aerolíneas, S.A. de C.V., otherwise known as Interjet, of Mexico, to repair and overhaul all components on its growing fleet of 24 Airbus A320 aircraft. The agreement includes access to an inventory pool for Interjet as well as the placement of main base stock in Toluca, Mexico. Aveos will also support the development of Interjet's in-house component and repair capability.
"This contract is a great step forward for us, allowing Aveos to bring its expertise to a world-class airline such as Interjet," stated Jerry Kent, Vice President and General Manager, Component Solutions, at Aveos. "Our valuable experience on the Airbus A320 and inventory management will ensure that Interjet is getting the best-in-class service it expects."
Aveos began preliminary work with Interjet in late December 2010. The work will be performed at the new Aveos Component Solutions Facility in Montreal, Canada. The facility has begun to come on stream and is planned to be completed mid-2011. It will boast state-of-the-art enhanced equipment and ergonomics, making it one of the most advanced such repair facilities in North America. The 5-year contract opens the door to further potential work with Interjet as the airline expands its fleet of A320s from 24 to 40 by November 2012 and as Aveos expands its global client base.
