19th February 2020 – AJW Group, a world-leading independent specialist in the global management of aircraft spares, has purchased Airbus A319 MSN2186 aircraft for teardown.

The ex – Air Malta aircraft which is 15 years old, is powered by CFMI CFM56-5B6/P engines and APS3200 Auxiliary Power Unit.

After teardown, the A319 components will be recertified at AJW Group’s maintenance hub in Montreal (AJW Technique), OEMs and other strategic vendors. The high-quality parts will be stored at AJW Group’s HQ in Sussex, UK and shipped to our strategic hubs around the world ready for exchange and sale to support our airline customers’ extensive portfolio of A320 family aircraft.

Interested parties are now able to make enquiries to their account managers.

Ian Malin, Chief Financial Officer, AJW Group, said:

“At AJW Group we have an extensive inventory of Airbus spare parts located in strategic hubs across the world. This teardown is the first in a series of airframe and engine teardowns this year as part of our commitment to ensure that our valued-customers’ operations are supported through access to our pool of high-quality components.

“As the global fleet of Airbus A320 family aircraft continues to mature, these teardown projects enable us to react to the shortage on the market and enable us to bolster our inventory and cement our position as the ‘go-to’ source for A320 material for the next decade.”
