Voyageur Aviation Corp., a subsidiary of Chorus Aviation, and Segers Aviation SA are establishing a regional aircraft parts depot in Dubai, UAE.
The partnership includes a spare parts distribution agreement utilising Segers’ logistics and sales experience to sell Voyageur-owned spare parts to operators in the region and further afield.
Under the agreement, Voyageur will be providing a pool of Dash 8-400, CRJ, and Dash 8 Classic spare parts to Segers for sale or exchange.
“We are extremely pleased with the establishment of a regional parts depot in Dubai, which aligns with our vision to deliver regional aviation to the world,” said Joe Randell, President and chief executive officer, Chorus. “Voyageur’s Avparts division has been on a steady growth path since its inception and is an important part of our ability to provide a full suite of regional aviation support services.”
Larry Bayliss, vice-president, Avparts at Voyageur commented: “We have long recognized the need to position spare parts close to our customers and to offer commercial support within the time zone. Our longstanding relationship with Segers combined with their proven logistics and sales capability make them an ideal partner.”
The two companies have a history of co-operation and partnership as Voyageur has sent Dash 8 propeller components to Segers’ UK MRO, Proptech Aero Ltd for years.
“Our Dubai location, with its many strategic benefits and excellent logistics connectivity, has played a significant role in our success over many years and we look forward to working with Voyageur on this fantastic opportunity,” Peter Clift, Segers managing director said, adding that Voyageur’s experience “gives us great confidence that we will have the right spare parts available at the right prices to support customers in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe. We look forward to working with operators to meet their requirements and to discuss longer term support opportunities.”
