AerFin, which specialises in aircraft end-of-life services, and BP Aero, the full-service aviation solutions provider, have agreed to a new long-term engine support contract.

The contract, announced in connection with MRO Americas in Atlanta, will support CFM56 and CF34 engine part overhaul at BP Aero’s facilities in in Irving, Texas. Attention will  be paid to repairing Aerfin’s extensive inventory of CF34 parts, in order to meet ongoing industry demand.  The deal enhances a growing relationship between the two companies, which have collaborated for several years to deliver engine and components solutions to airlines and MROs.

“We have established a strong, important partnership with BP Aero that is continuing to grow in line with our business,” said James Bennett, Director of Sales and Marketing, AerFin. “At AerFin, we pride ourselves on being a key strategic partner for airlines and MROs. There is a challenging discrepancy in the supply and availability of CF34-8E engines and components in the current environment. This particular agreement will ensure we have the capabilities to meet global customer demand with high-quality, cost-effective engine solutions.”

“AerFin has been a great growth customer, especially in 2018,” said Jack Lane, VP of Sales and Marketing at BP Aero. “BP Aero recognized the need to offer support for CF34-8C & 8E in 2017, adding to our already established support of CFM56-3, 5A, 5B, 5C & 7B, CF6-80C2, GE90-95 and PW4000 engine part overhaul needs. This agreement allows for continued growth but more importantly, enhances our mutual commitment to serve the end customers.”
