AAR subsidiary Airinmar has signed a 3-year agreement with Brazil’s Azul to enhance the airline’s supply chain management and performance.
“We are delighted and proud that Azul has selected Airinmar to be an integral part of its strategy to enhance its supply chain management to meet the demands of a rapidly growing airline,” said Mike Humphreys, Airinmar’s president. He added the company was looking to grow its business in South America, and that the new partnership with Azul “adds a well-respected customer to our growing airline customer base.”
Cesar Okajima, Azul’s supply chain director, said Airinmar’s services and collaborative approach were “the perfect fit for helping Azul maintain our leading position in this competitive market. Optimising our supply chain and decreasing costs will support our airline’s continued growth.” Azul operates a fleet of 122 aircraft.

It also recently signed a similar repair cycle management agreement with Africa’s Kenya Airways. The two-year deal will assist the airline in enhancing its supply chain management and performance, and maximising its new aircraft warranty entitlement recovery.
Kenya Airways carries over four million passengers annually and has a fleet of 38 aircraft.
