Supplier signs parts agreement with Mexican airline
An airplane parts supplier in the region has signed a support agreement with a regional airline in Mexico.
Muskegon-based AeroVision International said this month it signed a comprehensive ERJ component support agreement with Aéreo Calafia, which is based at the Manuel Márquez de León International Airport in La Paz, Mexico.
The support agreement, effective immediately, provides Aéreo Calafia with access to an “extensive inventory” of line replaceable units, or LRUs, used to support its growing fleet of ERJ 145 aircraft.
Parts will be held at Aéreo Calafia’s maintenance facility in La Paz and “backstopped” by AeroVision’s entire inventory.
Pete Gibson, AeroVision’s VP of aircraft services, said the company’s commitment to providing the “right parts located in the right place” and in a “predictable and cost-effective” manner is what Aéreo Calafia needs to “achieve the dispatch reliability its growth requires.”
“We are excited to be a trusted partner in Aéreo Calafia’s growth,” said Jeff Barnes, president, AeroVision International.
AeroVision supplies business and regional commuter engines and engine parts in support of operators, as well as maintenance, repair and overhaul, or MRO, facilities around the world. It also sells and leases aircraft.
