Spairliners has opened a new warehouse and logistics centre for component supply in the Singapore Free Trade Zone, North of Changi Airport. The facility opened in August. The new site — alongside those already operating in Paris, Frankfurt and Munich — brings the company closer to customers in the Asia-Pacific region. The company says it can now deliver to any airports in the regio within a few hours.
Headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, Spairliners was founded in 2005 by two of the world’s largest MRO (Maintenance Repair and Overhaul) providers, Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance and Lufthansa Technik. Initially focused on A380 component support, the company extended its services portfolio to the Embraer E-Jet aircraft family in 2013.
The new location covers a growing spectrum of critical Line Replaceable Units (LRU) for Airbus A380 aircraft and is now ready to expand to Embraer E-Jet aircraft.
Through an extensive stock of serviceable parts, supported by a local repair network, Spairliners aims to increase the efficiency of its component supply and significantly shorten delivery times for A380 customers, such as Qantas Airways and Malaysia Airlines. The company notes that today, more than 40% of customers’ flight hours are logged in the Asia-Pacific region.
