The facility, which has about 30 technicians, holds an inventory of over 10,000 lines of stock across 3,000 part numbers of rotable, repairable and C&E items. The EU network will be fully supported by a bespoke logistics service from this new facility.
“The opening of the Milan facility has shown what can be achieved through close collaboration between AJW and easyJet, and the achievement is made even more impressive considering the impacts of COVID-19,” said Brendan McConnellogue, easyJet’s Director of Engineering and Maintenance. “The facility will further improve our logistics network in support of the European based fleet. The opening of this facility allows us to continue to serve our customers whilst maintaining safety as our number one priority.”
Despite global travel restrictions and numerous local lockdowns, AJW succeeded in implementing the project on schedule, with physical infrastructure, IT and recruitment completed, and further training ongoing. The facility was added to easyJet’s MOE in December last year. The facility went live from Jan. 28.
“The outstanding team effort to deliver this project on-time during a global pandemic is celebratory. ”
The agility and ‘can do’ attitude of AJW was exemplary despite ever changing travel restrictions and local lockdowns,” said Tom De Geytere, Chief Sales Officer of AJW Group. “Our cross-functional teams have worked incredibly hard to deliver. We are thankful for the collaboration we have received from easyJet and the engagement of our local freight partner, who assisted in delivering under tight time pressures as a trusted and reliable partner.”
