AELS has released that it has completed the acquisition of a Boeing 737-800 airframe (MSN 34692, OO-JLO), previously owned and operated by TUI Belgium. This acquisition has been realised with the support of Skytech-AIC, that acted as Marketing Agent for TUI.
This is the third airframe that AELS purchased from TUI, testifying that AELS is a competent partner to dismantle its aircraft in a responsible and sustainable manner. The aircraft was purchased without the engines and is located at Prestwick Airport in Scotland. Since the aircraft is unable to fly to the AELS’ facility and the airport has limitations, a creative solution was developed. Approximately 1,000 parts, including the landing gear, will be added to the AELS inventory, ready to continue their way to their customers.
Since 2006 AELS has been buying end-of-life Boeing and Airbus aircraft that the company disassembles at its own facility. AELS is the only company in Europe that handles the entire supply chain for aircraft that reach their end of life, from disassembly and dismantling, component management to material recycling.
