BERKSHIRE, England — AAR (NYSE: AIR) subsidiary Airinmar, the top global independent provider of component repair cycle management and aircraft warranty solutions, signed a new services agreement with low-fare carrier Frontier Airlines.
Airinmar will provide a full suite of support services covering both aircraft warranty and value engineering. Warranty management services will cover the identification, claim and recovery of the multiple airframe, engine and component warranty entitlements provided by Airbus and its suppliers. Value engineering support will include cost oversight services to assure compliance with Frontier’s contracted component repairs and minimize component flight-hour out-of-scope repair charges. The services will complement Frontier’s current materials management activities and focus on maximizing the recovery of Frontier’s warranty entitlements and reducing the cost of component repair.
“Airinmar’s effective warranty management and value engineering services, combined with its ability to customize solutions, will support us by providing more efficient management of our maintenance spend on our growing fleet while achieving our high levels of operational performance,” said Trevor Stedke, Frontier Airlines Senior Vice President of Operations. “Airinmar’s delivery of cost savings and credit recovery aligns with our mission of providing Low Fares Done Right across America.”
“We are excited to provide our services and deliver results to the largest A320neo operator in the U.S.” said Matt Davies, Airinmar General Manager. “With 100 aircraft in service and a further 160 on order, we are proud to contribute to Frontier’s growth and success over the coming years.”
