Japan Airlines Signs GTA with AJW Aviation to Provide Component Support

London, 12th August 2013: Japan Airlines Co. Ltd., (JAL) has signed a General Terms Agreement (GTA) with AJW Aviation, the leading independent integrated aircraft support specialist, to provide spares support across its fleet and subsidiary airlines.

AJW will support Japan Airlines’ fleet of Boeing aircraft from its Singapore-based facility which offers extensive service-ready Boeing component inventories to help minimise AOG delays in returning aircraft to service. 

“The team in AJW’s Singapore office is proud to announce this GTA with Japan Airlines,” explains Christopher Whiteside, President, AJW Group. “The growing reputation of AJW across the whole Asian region, combined with access to our inventories and additional support services, has proved that they can rely on our team’s experience and dedication to support their operation. AJW is working closely with Japan Airlines’ engineering teams to adhere to local authority JCAB requirements and demonstrate how a more flexible approach can positively benefit their operational efficiencies whilst maintaining component integrity, warranty guarantees and total quality.”

This new contract with Japan Airlines and its subsidiaries once again underlines the benefits of Component Support, PBH, Pooling and Leasing options available from AJW.  Already highly regarded for its award-winning 24/7 AOG and critical component services, AJW has recently opened AJW Technique, its comprehensive component repair facility in Montreal. This is ideally placed to further enhance the service that AJW can offer to airlines across Asia via direct maintenance cost reduction.
