PDQ Airspares are pleased to announce this month, that Indonesia's PT Garuda Maintenance Facility Aero Asia has signed up to a multi-year ConsumableCare agreement tailored from the PDQ range of support packages, in support of both their A320 line and heavy maintenance programs.
The Jakarta based MRO enjoys an impressive 1,150,000 sqm site and is currently the largest in South-East Asia, boasting several fully equipped hangars and other facilities. Formally the technical arm of Garuda Indonesia Airlines, since 1949 the organisation has evolved through several landmark developments and now offers its support to the whole Southeast Asia Airline Industry, providing progressive maintenance services up to full 'A' checks on B737, B737NG, B747, A300, A320, A330, DC10 and MD80s.
The focus of the ConsumableCare program will be to further enhance GMF's line and heavy maintenance procedures, by ensuring stock levels are optimised for constant availability of both routine and critical components. Substantial financial and logistical gains will also be quickly realised as PDQ's 'Single Source Supply' pipe eliminates dependency on the cumbersome supply chain, reducing related hidden costs and providing a much lighter and efficient procurement process.
Furthermore, due to the flexibility of Next Generation ConsumableCare packages, the consignment material will also be made available to the entire region, providing great opportunities for Airlines & MRO's to purchase material locally, with the added bonus of eliminating international import shipping time, logistics and paperwork.
