Saudi Air Navigation Services relies on Thales for Navigation Aids

Posted 13 March 2019 · Add Comment

Saudi Air Navigation Services (SANS), the organisation responsible for maintaining safety over Saudi Skies, continues to choose Thales to supply navigation aids at major airports.

 

Because of the country’s meteorological conditions, which include frequent sandstorms, and a significant day time night time temperature shift, sophisticated equipment such as navigation aids, which are constantly exposed to the elements, require regular and responsive maintenance services. Thales is able to quickly and efficiently respond to all customer needs.

The Group proposed a holistic solution to ensure a robust and secure supply chain of spares. Through a Vendor Managed Inventory VMI programme, SANS will procure spares and repairs based on a predetermined price list and fixed delivery time. One of the key elements of the VMI is the reduction of turnaround time from several weeks to virtually zero.

The contract is for the support of SANS’s extensive installed base of Thales Navaids, including the ILS 420, CVOR 431, DVOR 432 and DME 415/435 installed across the Kingdom.
