Singapore, February 13th 2014: AJW Aviation has signed a five year framework agreement with East Air the private carrier based in Tajikistan. The airline operates one A320-300 and one Boeing 737-400 aircraft and will be fully supported by AJW across the supply and repair of components, as well as AJW’s award winning global AOG service. This end-to-end programme is backed up by AJW’s strategic inventories located in Russia and Eastern Europe, and the dedicated Russian speaking support teams across the region.
East Air was the first private airline in Tajikistan, and the first to fly Boeing and Airbus aircraft in the country. Since 2007 East Air has operated flights to Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Kazan and Orenburg.
The airline has great plans to open new routes to other cities within the Russian Federation and countries of Central Asia. At the end of 2013 East Air joined a multilateral agreement on the formation of transfer connections and airline passengers are now able to take transit flights from Tajikistan to various cities of the Russian Federation and abroad through Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk and Moscow. In December 2013 East Air also announced its collaboration with Travelport - the leading service company in the field of sales and e-commerce in the global travel industry.
AJW Aviation is committed to partnering with East Air at this time of planned growth and will work with the airline to deliver a range of supply chain solutions that will aid efficiency and productivity. 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 worldwide via direct maintenance cost reduction.
Serving a global customer base of around 1,000 airlines with nearly 500 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.
It will provide power-by-the-hour support for Somon Air's current fleet of two B737 Classics.
