“We’re focused on building a high-quality spares hub in France” Armando Filho, Director of Material Management
Luxembourg, September 13, 2022: Vallair, the mature asset specialist, has purchased an Airbus A321 (MSN 1008) for imminent part-out. The 1999 vintage aircraft was previously operated by AtlasGlobal and managed by TrueAero LLC.
The airframe will be fully disassembled at Vallair’s facility in Montpellier, under the supervision of Armando Filho, Director of Material Management. “Part of the Group’s strategy is to build and sustain a good-quality spares hub in France. We are fully committed to supporting this aircraft type for airlines, lessors and asset managers,” he says.
Intelligent repair management with an integrated supply chain and global network of audited MRO facilities ensures that Vallair provides a streamlined service to support the market needs. Filho explains that parts will be removed from the A321 aircraft, processed and made available for sale in Q4 2022.
Vallair’s Material Management team works in close partnership with the Teardown function and manages the processing of hundreds of aircraft parts every month alongside Vallair’s in-house aerostructures repair shop based in the Châteauroux facility.
