VAS Aero Services, a global leader in aviation logistics and aftermarket services, has acquired six managed Airbus A320 aircraft from Genesis Aircraft Leasing Services, a full-service aircraft leasing company based in Dublin, Ireland.
The Airbus A320 aircraft – serial numbers 1652, 1802, 1827, 1835, 1591 and 1891 – have been operated by LATAM. The airframes will be allocated for teardown and the surplus parts staged in the United States, United Kingdom and Europe for rapid distribution through VAS’ aftermarket network to its airline operator customer base.
“The addition of six Airbus A320 airframes to our in-demand portfolio of used serviceable materials (USM) positions VAS as one of the industry’s premier USM parts suppliers to A320 operators around the globe,” notes VAS CEO Tommy Hughes. “Our experience with A320 parts harvesting, refurbishment qualifications and pristine documentation and certification, mean VAS parts are ready to fly upon receipt, helping our customers return aircraft to revenue production in as little time as possible.”
