AerFin reports a strong start to 2019

During the first quarter of 2019, AerFin acquired three post-2000 DOM Airbus aircraft and a Boeing 737NG.

AerFin also successfully placed seven (CF34 and CFM56-5) engines on short-term lease with several global operators since September last year. AerFin has also completed the sale of multiple assets, mainly CF34, CFM56-7B and CFM56-5C engines.

With demand growing for CF34-8 used serviceable material (USM), AerFin states that it has elected to induct several engines for tear-down. This engine material will be utilised to support not just global E-Jet operators but also Bombardier CRJ 800 and 900 operators due to the core CF34-8E/-8C engine piece-part commonality. While on the CFM56-5B platform, AerFin is providing an engine material support package to an American Flagship carrier, offering a significant cost-saving solution to its maintenance operation.

AerFin has decided to expand its AOG operations at its London-Gatwick Facility. At the end of 2018, AerFin reported an increase of 280% in AOG orders processed throughout the year. The expansion of the AOG facility has been vital in supporting the RFQ response and purchase order processing time, which is currently recorded at 1 hr 7 minutes.

Earlier this year, AerFin reiterated its commitment to delivering on-wing support to E-Jet operators in the Americas by launching an equipment logistic facility in Atlanta. The facility will initially cover more than 200 E-Jet rotable part numbers, including a selection of high-demand component LRUs.
