VAS Aero Services, a global leader in aviation logistics and aftermarket services, has acquired four Airbus A330-300 airframes and 11 Pratt & Whitney PW4168 engines from Fort Worth, TX-based American Airlines (American).
The four Airbus A330-300 wide-body aircraft were retired from American’s fleet in 2020. Adding to the breadth and depth of VAS’ already significant aftermarket parts inventory, the airframes will be allocated for teardown and the surplus parts distributed through VAS’s worldwide airline operator customer base.
The Pratt & Whitney PW4168 engines will be placed with VAS’ aftermarket services partner, SR Technics, for engine lease pool support and ultimately disassembled to increase their used serviceable material (USM) availability. The addition of the PW engines further strengthens VAS’ supply programme with SR Technics and offers major end users favourable green-time leasing options and vital USM solutions.
