A J Walter Aviation has been awarded a seven year contract to provide power-by-the-hour support to Korea’s Eastar Jet. The agreement covers the airline’s current fleet of six B737NG aircraft though Eastar Jet plan to rapidly grow this fleet to operate a minimum of sixteen aircraft by 2021.
Eastar Jet was launched in 2007 and currently operates services to regional destinations including Gimpo, Gunsan and Cheongju. The airline’s main operating base is Gimpo International Airport, Seoul and AJW will position stock here to service the fleet as well as providing further direct support from its Singapore facility. “Our ability to provide local support from our Singapore base was of fundamental importance to Easter Jet when choosing AJW as their component logistics and maintenance provider,” comments Boris Wolstenholme, CEO, A J Walter Aviation.
