AJW Group, that has offices in Dubai, has signed a component repair agreement between the US-based leisure carrier Allegiant Air (Allegiant) and the Groupís Montreal-based MRO facility, AJW Technique.

 

The contract, covering 150-part numbers, is a significant win for the aircraft parts maintenance and repair specialist, which signed the deal during the MRO Americas expo in Orlando, Florida.

Allegiant has outlined ambitious growth plans that will see AJW supporting up to 100 aircraft by 2020 for the low cost, Las Vegas-headquartered carrier.

The agreement is a fixed price repair contract that utilises quality focussed engineering practices to increase the on-wing life of the components and thus improve dispatch reliability.  

The contract, which will be carried out at AJW’s 160,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility near Montreal’s International Airport, will provide Allegiant with access toafull pool of A320 forward exchange spares material.

Commenting on the deal, Gavin Simmonds, Chief Operating Officer, AJW Group, said: “We are delighted about our strategic partnership with Allegiant. It is one of the USA’s most exciting and ambitious airlines, and this deal continues our longstanding relationship with the company.

“We have seen through our work with other low-cost carriers the transformational impact that can be achieved through a strategic approach to component MRO, and we are confident that we can further enable many of these benefits for Allegiant. We look forward to working with their team to support the airline’s continued growth.”

Scott Sheldon, Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, Allegiant, comments: “Our self-administered component repair agreement with AJW marks the next stage in our long-standing and successful relationship.

 “Allegiant has ambitious growth plans for the coming years and we believe AJW Group and its Montreal facility, AJW Technique, are the perfect partner to support us on this evolving journey.”
