Contrail Aviation Support, a full-service engine asset management platform as well as worldwide supplier of surplus and aftermarket commercial jet engine components, has announced that over the past 12-months, the company has acquired A318s (CFM56-5B powered), A320s (V2500 powered), ten CFM56-5B engines and more V2500-A5 spare engines to support the growing USM demands of Contrail’s engine MRO and airline customers. Additionally, Contrail has placed two CFM56-5B engines on lease with a European airline and acquired V2500-A5 engines on lease, growing its Asian operator base.
As Contrail’s book of business and client list expands, the company has also increased its marketing resources by recently hiring former GECAS executive Gerard Browne as Contrail’s SVP of Marketing and Origination. Browne teams up with Mark Shaw, Contrail’s SVP of Airline Marketing, who together will cover the globe from a Marketing & Origination perspective, targeting opportunities for strategic growth within the airline and lessor communities.
The company has also recently added to its workforce by growing both the quality and sales teams to further support its expanding USM platform.
