Satair and Transavia Airlines have signed an agreement for Satair’s Integrated Material Services (IMS) solution, which will aid in the introduction of the A321neo into the Dutch low-fare airline’s fleet later this year.

Satair’s IMS solution will cater to Transavia’s requirements for expendable materials for line and base maintenance operations, supporting Transavia to ensure a seamless entry into service and the efficient operation of its new fleet.

“This strategic collaboration marks an exciting milestone for Satair and Transavia, and we are looking forward to delivering a tailored solution that will ensure high material availability and streamline operations for Transavia’s A321neo entry into service,” said Paul Lochab, Chief Commercial Officer, Satair.

The use of Satair IMS will enable Transavia to increase spare parts availability while streamlining supply chain costs. As its fleet grows, Transavia will scale up the IMS as its maintenance requirements evolve, with Satair overseeing the entire supply chain from forecasting and planning to purchasing and delivery.

“We are pleased to join hands with Satair, trusting their expertise to ensure smooth operations and a reliable supply chain, setting the stage for a successful integration of the new A321neo into our fleet,” added Robert-Jan Korenromp, Head of Fleet and Technical Services, Transavia.
