APOC Aviation Acquires Young A319 for Teardown from Aircastle

: Sep 3, 2020 - : 2:25 pm

To complement its recent purchases of other A320 family airframes for teardown, APOC Aviation has closed a deal with leading lessor Aircastle for a 2008 vintage A319 (MSN 3450) that was returned from lease by Volaris in July.

The aircraft is heading immediately for part-out at Marana in Arizona – the location for two earlier APOC teardowns (MSN 1758 and 1790) that are now complete. It is anticipated that the first serviceable parts, including landing gear but not engines, will be shipped back to APOC’s Rotterdam facility in Q4.

According to Jasper van den Boogaard, VP Airframe Acquisition & Trading at APOC Aviation, the company is focused on securing the youngest airframes possible. “As operators reflect on their capacity and right-size their fleets in the COVID-19 environment we anticipate that more deals will be on the table this autumn. Our policy is to pursue younger equipment that will be more desirable for the in-service fleet, MRO and AOG requirements.”

APOC Aviation  has closed several Airbus airframe deals this year. “We want a balanced stock to support our customers” says Van den Boogaard. “I’m expecting our next aircraft will be a B737NG.”
