Air Tanzania has signed up to Airbus Flight Hour Services(FHS), joining Uganda Airlines as the 2 latest customers for the Airbus service, both putting pen to paper at the Dubai Airshow.
These two airlines will benefit from comprehensive material services including on-site-stock, access to Airbus’ spares pools and components engineering and repair services around the world. Airbus will guarantee spare parts availability, generating value through increased fleet availability and operating maintenance costs savings.
Their selections mark the first African customers for Airbus’ FHS on two new aircraft types, the A220 and the A330. They also increase Airbus’ FHS footprint in the African continent, further demonstrating the growing trust placed in Airbus’ services, both for Widebody and Single-Aisle fleets.
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.
