AJW Group has opened a new 35,000 ft² warehouse in Milan to primarily support easyJet’s EU operations as part of the recently signed complete supply chain solution contract.
The new EU facility located adjacent to Malpensa airport, Milan, holds significant inventory of over 10,000 lines of stock across 3,000 part numbers of rotable, repairable and C&E items. With 30 staff delivering a 24/7/365 operation and operating under easyJet’s part 145 approval, the EU network will be fully supported by a bespoke logistics service from this new facility.
Despite global travel restrictions and numerous local lockdowns, AJW has succeeded in implementing the project on schedule, with physical infrastructure, IT and recruitment completed, and further training ongoing. The facility was added to easyJet’s MOE in December 2020 and the stock transition was performed throughout December and early January. The facility went live on January 28, supporting the easyJet network.
The opening of the new EU facility will ensure an ongoing efficient delivery of spares to easyJet aircraft across Europe and will speed up operational recovery with improved logistic links by supporting network locations close to the hub.
