Airbus subsidiary Satair has taken the lead on global material support and services for A220 operators. Since July, Airbus Canada has officially transferred the overall A220 material management services offer to Satair, as part of the integration of the programme into Airbus.
The transfer represents a key milestone for Airbus and a significant step in the overall integration of the A220 programme.
“All A220 customers will now benefit from the same level of service and global network offered by Satair on all other Airbus platforms”, said Rob Dewar, Senior Vice President, A220 Customer Services, Customer Satisfaction, and Product Policy.
The official A220 material management services have smoothly been transitioned to Satair over the summer. Overall, Satair will now be in charge of a wide range of value-adding activities including: Planning & inventory; purchasing; quality inspection; certification; warehousing & distribution; customer order handling; 24/7 AOG handling; initial provisioning, and tool lease.
More than 100 A220s are in the fleets of seven operators flying on routes in Asia, America, Europe and Africa, proving the great versatility of Airbus’ latest family member.
The A220’s order book comprises 642 A220 aircraft on firm order as of end of July 2020.
