EirTrade Aviation, the aviation technical asset services and trading company, has been awarded an AFRA (Aircraft Fleet Recycling Association) accreditation. The accreditation will see the company taking on the disassembly market as the first AFRA-accredited facility in Ireland and will serve to reassure its clients of the regular review and regulation of all processes. EirTrade provides disassembly services for all Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, Bombardier and ATR types. To date EirTrade has disassembled regional and commercial aircraft of all sizes from ATR-72 to A380 aircraft.
The AFRA Best Management Practices (BMP) guide for disassembly is the leading standard for dismantling aircraft in a safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly manner. Established in 2006, AFRA is a membership-based global collaboration to elevate industry performance and increase commercial value for end-of-service aircraft. AFRA represents companies from across the globe and throughout the supply chain – from manufacturers to material recyclers. Through the collective experience of its members, AFRA’s BMP Guide has significantly improved the management of end-of-life aircraft in terms of environmental and sustainable performance.
