Two new airline customers in Africa have selected Airbus’ Flight Hour Services (FHS) to support their Airbus fleets: Air Tanzania for its A220s and Uganda Airlines for its A330neos.
The carriers, the first African customers for Airbus’ FHS on two new aircraft types, the A220 and the A330, will benefit from comprehensive material services including on-site-stock, access to Airbus’ spares pools and components engineering and repair services around the world. FHS also guarantees spare parts availability, generating value through increased fleet availability and operating maintenance costs savings.
Airbus’ FHS helps to secure fleet entry into service through an easy maintenance set-up and access to an established industrial set-up, while maximising the aircraft availability through component reliability.
Notably, for A220 customers FHS offers a large stock availability, both for on-site stock management and parts pooling, and a dedicated operational supply chain already supporting the type’s growing customer base.
Overall, the global Airbus fleet covered by FHS has increased by more than 25% over the past two years to more than 1,100 aircraft.
