Aventure Aviation has acquired its eighth Boeing 737NG airframe for 2023. Last operated by China Airlines, the 737-800 aircraft, MSN 30173, will be dismantled at Jetyard in Marana, Arizona.
"The timing of this acquisition is perfect, with airline passenger bookings now exceeding pre-pandemic levels and a supply chain struggling to get parts to customers," said Ebrahim Zakaria, Aventure Aviation's vice president of business development.
"The industry trend is to provide more savings on maintenance, and we are seeing the airworthy parts business poised to grow even bigger as airlines operate mature aircraft longer due to delays in newer aircraft deliveries," continued Zakaria. "We are seeing increased opportunities to support our airline and cargo customers, and our latest part-out will allow us to support them with critical 737NG inventory."
"Aventure continues to offer a unique global aviation investment platform for investors, leasing companies, and owners," said Aventure Aviation president Talha Faruqi. "With our experience in dismantling and a significant global customer base, we have solutions to deploy capital, provide asset management services, and material consignments for stakeholders."
"We continue to see airlines looking to maximize their return on investment for fleets nearing retirement. They depend upon the availability of parts for operations and the initial provisioning of additional acquired aircraft," Faruqi added.
Aventure is in active discussions with owners, financial institutions, lessors, and airlines to find revenue-generating teardown solutions for idle aircraft.
Aventure Aviation will attend MRO Americas taking place April 18–20 in Atlanta, Georgia, where Aventure's global headquarters is based. Representatives will be available to discuss parts supply solutions with airlines, and seek synergies with maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) shops to assist in the significant number of parts Aventure is outsourcing for refurbishment.
