22nd October 2019 – AJW Group, the world-leading independent specialist in the global management of aircraft spares, has strengthened its long-term partnership with Tigerair in Australia with an extension to their Power-by-the-Hour (PBH) contract.
AJW Group has been providing an integrated component pooling, repair and logistics support programme to Tigerair since 2014. During this time, it has delivered improved operational efficiency and cost savings, which continue to be key focus areas for the airline.
The PBH agreement covers Tigerair’s fleet of A320 aircraft. Under the support programme, AJW will satisfy the airlines material requirements across a variety of component groups including airframe and engine LRU’s, major assemblies, wheels and brakes, auxiliary power units (APU), thrust reversers and consumables.
Tigerair is an Australian low-cost airline headquartered in Melbourne with two additional established service bases at Sydney and Brisbane Airports. Tigerair operates a fleet of Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 aircraft, across 21 domestic routes out of 12 destinations around Australia.
Christopher Whiteside, Chief Executive Officer of AJW Group, said
“I’m pleased that we are able to continue and grow our partnership with Tigerair. Together we share the desire to challenge existing practices and to innovate the industry. It is for this reason that our partnership has continued to flourish over the years.
“Tigerair was AJW’s first major contract in Australia and our work over the past five years has demonstrated the Group’s strength across the Australasia region.”
