Azul signs FHS Components and flight training contract with Airbus for A320neo fleet

Azul Brazilian Airlines has selected “Services by Airbus” to provide Flight Hour Services (FHS) components over a 12 year period. The service will provide an extensive scope of A320 line replaceable units (LRUs), guaranteed spare parts availability through pool access service, on-site stock at customer main base and selected outstations, as well as repairs. This FHS contract also represents the first in Latin America with a new parts ‘pool’ in Brazil at Viracopos International Airport, Campinas. The pool will be available to serve customers in the region.

Furthermore, Azul has chosen “Training By Airbus” to provide A320 Family flight simulator training and courses in Azul’s Training Center (Azul’s University “UniAzul”) – the largest training centre in Latin America, near Viracopos International Airport in Campinas, São Paulo. This 12-year training agreement includes more than 70,000 flight training hours and the installation of one full-flight A320 simulator in UniAzul to train Azul pilots and maintenance crews starting October. Under such partnership, UniAzul will be the first Airbus “Approved Training Organisation” (ATO) in all of South America. This ATO will implement Airbus ATO/EASA processes and tools, allowing Azul to provide training certified by Airbus. Azul currently operates five A330-200s and has ordered 35 A320neo Family aircraft. Azul has also committed to operate 28 A320neo Family and three A350 XWB aircraft as part of leasing agreements.
