Airinmar will provide its Value Engineering services and expertise to Smartwings.
The Czech low-cost airline Smartwings has just signed a three-year agreement with Airinmar to achieve cost savings on MRO services. AAR's subsidiary will provide its expertise on component repair cycle management and aircraft warranty solutions through its Value Engineering Services.
Airinmar’s 'Value Engineering Services' analyzes the costs associated with the repair process, including price quotes from suppliers and service vendors, labor, flight-hour agreements, and power-by-the-hour (PBH) pricing and warranties. The company aims at identifing cost reductions, as well as process improvements.
Petr Hutla, Smartwings Head of Logistics, said: “This new partnership with Airinmar will support us by efficiently managing our maintenance spend on our growing fleet while maintaining our high levels of operational performance.”
In May, Airinmar began applying its Value Engineering expertise and in-house support systems to identify and deliver opportunities to reduce the cost of maintenance on a wide range of aircraft equipment, including landing gear, nacelles, avionics, hydro-mechanical, actuation, interior components and more.
