Boeing Spare Parts Program to Help Skymark Airlines Reduce Costs

Boeing has announced Skymark Airlines as the newest airline to join the Boeing 737 Component Services Program (CSP). Boeing says the program will help to reduce costs, as well as help Skymark enhance efficiency and improve spare parts availability, potentially saving 30 percent on inventory, repair and administrative costs. The materials management and supply-chain solution is a joint operation of Boeing Commercial Aviation Services and Air France Industries KLM Engineering and Maintenance. Under the new agreement, Boeing and AFI KLM E&M will manage spare parts and components inventory for the Tokyo- based airline, assuring timely delivery, and Skymark will be able to avoid warehousing and long-term inventory holding costs. “Keeping costs low is paramount to a low-cost carrier and Skymark Airlines is taking a significant step in controlling their materials costs by joining the 737 Component Services Program,” said Dale Wilkinson, vice president of Material Services for Boeing Commercial Aviation Services. The program features a customized recommended spare parts list based on customer data. The list includes dispatch- critical parts and both avionics and non-avionics line replaceable units in recommended quantities to support each airline’s dispatch reliability requirements.
