GA Telesis (GAT) has reported that a major European airline has entered into an exclusive multi-year agreement to receive rotable component flight-hour support through GAT’s Intelligent Global Engine and Airframe Replenishment (“iGEAR”) program for its fleet of widebody aircraft.
Launched in 2016 and managed by GAT’s Component Solutions Group (CSG), iGEAR programs provide airlines and operators with access to a global distribution network for rotable inventory and include 24/7/365 Live AOG support.
The agreement will cover ten aircraft supported via GAT’s UK-based operations and customer support and distribution center. This agreement will support the airline for five years with a multi-million-dollar dedicated pool inventory supporting a span of 125,000 flight hours.
In addition to rotable inventory support, they will also have access to GAT’s comprehensive in-house component and composite repair capabilities provided by GA Telesis MRO Services business units that will contribute to delivering cost reduction and streamlining the airline’s supply chain.
