AJW Group, an independent aircraft component parts, repair and supply chain solutions provider, has extended a power-by-the-hour (PBH) support contract with Brazilian cargo operator Modern Logistics.
The support contract providing full power-the-hour services for B737CL freighters, has been in operation since 2017 and was the first PBH contract for AJW in Brazil. Since 2017, AJW has become the supplier of choice for airlines across the South American region, reinforced by the recent signing of an agreement with Chilean ultra-low-cost carrier JetSMART Airlines SpA, with its rapidly expanding fleet of A320ceo and -neo aircraft and the Caribbean’s first ultra-low-cost airline, Arajet S.A., and its growing fleet of LEAP-powered B737 MAX aircraft.
Erik Fernando de Souza, Purchasing Manager, Modern Logistics, commented: “We are delighted to extend our support contract with AJW. We originally chose AJW because of its breadth and technical expertise as well as high response levels via 24/7 AOG service. Also important is the fair market value for the parts that we lease. Modern Logistics is the pre-eminent cargo operator in Brazil, serving a key market where dangerous and special goods need to be transported by air due to infrastructure gaps.”
