Posted 19 June 2017 · Add Comment

Boeing today announced, through its subsidiary Aviall, a multi-year consumables and expendables aircraft parts supply chain program agreement with Etihad Airways Engineering. The agreement expands Aviall's offerings to include full supply chain spectrum support, including forecasting, planning, advanced provisioning and supply chain administration.

Parts associated with this agreement include Boeing proprietary and Aviall-sourced parts used on Boeing and Airbus commercial aircraft.

"Aviall is excited to work closely with Etihad through this supply chain programme agreement," said Aviall President and CEO Eric Strafel. "Customer-inspired innovation is at the forefront of our company's service strategy. Developing key value-adding solutions, such as this program, will create greater supply chain connectivity and increase operational optimization for our customers and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partners."

"As the leading MRO in the Middle East, Etihad Airways Engineering sees partnerships with leading suppliers as an integral part of our development. This contract with Aviall is part of a strategy to continue to drive the company forward as a leading global maintenance provider," said Jeff Wilkinson, Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways Engineering. "It facilitates the planned growth of Etihad Airways Engineering's airframe and component services maintenance capabilities, and is an extension to our growing cooperation with Boeing. The contract is intended to grow further with the inclusion of more Boeing proprietary parts and the maturing Boeing 777 and 787 maintenance business in Abu Dhabi."
