XL Airways France Selects A J Walter Aviation for Ground Breaking Power-By-The-Hour Support Contract

A J Walter Aviation, the world’s leading independent aircraft support specialist, has been awarded a 5 year contract to provide power-by-the-hour support to the XL Airways France B737NG aircraft fleet.  This is especially important to AJW since it is the Company’s first PBH contract in the French aviation market and its first at Charles De Gaulle Airport where it will position consignment stock to support the XL fleet.

AJW has enjoyed considerable success in the European market in recent years and is pleased to be able to add Paris to its network of strategic hubs across the continent servicing airlines out of Berlin, Prague, Copenhagen, London and Manchester also. 


“We are extremely proud that our first French PBH contract is with XL Airways France.   Our flexible commercial approach, low cost base and 24/7 reliability makes us the ideal partner to support the XL Airways France fleet as well as providing the airline with confidence to develop its business across Africa and Asia from Charles de Gaulle ” says Declan Meagher, AJW Director of Sales & Marketing, Europe. 

XL Airways France is based at Charles de Gaulle Airport and its international flight network includes destinations such as Mexico, the Maldives, the Dominican Republic, the USA, Greece, Corsica and Italy.  For the last 4 years XL Airways France has also enjoyed the market leading position for its services from France to the Dominican Republic and the Maldives.  Laurent Magnin, President of XL Airways France, comments “This new contract with AJW will help us maintain our high standard of operations, further supporting our commitment to providing the best service possible for our customers, across all of our routes.”


This new contract once again underlines the benefits of the PBH options available from AJW.  Already highly regarded for its award-winning 24/7 AOG and critical component services, AJW is also currently growing its integrated consumables management and aircraft engine services business.  Serving a global customer base of more than 700 airlines with over 375 aircraft under contract AJW is fast becoming the partner of choice to offer fully integrated support solutions to airline and MRO organisations seeking competitive advantage.
