Monarch Aircraft Engineering signs full power-by-the-hour agreement with AJW Aviation
Monarch Aircraft Engineering has confirmed a multi-year full power-by-the-hour agreement with aircraft support specialist AJW Aviation. The power-by-the-hour agreement will supplement the component services provided by MAEL to the Monarch Airlines’ fleet of 34 Airbus A320/321 aircraft. Monarch Airlines is also seeking to optimise its fleet utilisation via increased flight frequencies and a reduction of its overall fleet to 34 narrow body A320/321 aircraft, while it awaits new deliveries of the Boeing 737 MAX from 2018. MAEL will focus on its core specialisms of line and base maintenance, Part M technical services and technical training; enabling AJW to assist with operational cost alignment through its renowned PBH service which commences in March.
