Copenhagen, Denmark, August 30 2023 – Satair, an Airbus Services company, and Transavia Airlines C.V. (“Transavia”), a prominent Dutch low-cost carrier under the Air France-KLM Group, have signed an agreement for Satair's Integrated Material Services (IMS) solution. The comprehensive multi-year partnership marks a significant milestone, as it represents the first strategic collaboration between Satair and Transavia. The agreement will play a pivotal role as Transavia prepares to introduce the A321neo into its fleet later this year, making it the airline's first Airbus aircraft in operation.
The agreement entails Satair's provision of integrated material services, catering to Transavia's requirements for expendable materials crucial for line- and base maintenance operations. As an Airbus aircraft operator, Transavia will rely on Satair's expertise and support to ensure a seamless entry into service and the safe and efficient operation of their new fleet.
Tailored to Transavia's specific needs, Satair's IMS will encompass all expendable airframe materials, enabling the airline to increase spare parts availability while streamlining supply chain costs. The scope of the IMS will expand further as Transavia's maintenance necessities evolve in line with fleet growth, with Satair overseeing the entire supply chain from forecasting and planning to purchasing and delivery while simultaneously mitigating Transavia’s total cost of ownership.
Paul Lochab, Chief Commercial Officer at Satair, says, "This strategic collaboration marks an exciting milestone for Satair and Transavia and we are looking forward to delivering a tailored solution that will ensure high material availability and streamline operations for Transavia’s A321neo entry into service."
Robert-Jan Korenromp, Head of Fleet and Technical Services, Transavia, remarked, "We are pleased to join hands with Satair, trusting their expertise to ensure smooth operations and a reliable supply chain, setting the stage for a successful integration of the new A321neo into our fleet".
