CASL signs contract with AJW Aviation
Integrated aircraft support specialist, AJW Aviation (AJW), has contracted China Aircraft Services (CASL) to be a preferred provider of storage and logistics services in Hong Kong. The co-operative agreement is formed around the utilisation of CASL’s logistical hub, backed up by AJW’s Singapore office to provide a combined resource of aircraft support excellence across the region. AJW will provide aircraft parts pooling services to airlines, and CASL will act as a storage and logistics arm of AJW to manage the Airbus and Boeing parts positioned in Hong Kong. Airlines that have a high frequency of flights into Hong Kong will benefit from the efficiencies delivered by this shared expertise and CASL’s customer, Hunnu Air, is the first customer to enjoy this service. Based in Ulan Bataar, this Mongolian airline operates two A320s on its Paris and Hong Kong routes and plans to introduce A330 aircraft in 2015. By partnering with CASL, AJW will offer 24/7 access to essential aircraft spare parts so airlines such as Hunnu Air can opt for a power-by-hour (PBH) agreement to align their operational costs and improve efficiency.
