A key factor in this new PBH support agreement is that Primera will have access to AJW’s extensive stock of Boeing 737NG spares already conveniently sited across their hub network and this benefits Primera’s numerous bases across Scandinavia, the Canary Islands and throughout the Mediterranean. It is AJW’s policy to ring the globe with strategic hubs of commercial Airbus and Boeing spares in support of specific power-by-the-hour contracts, and to sustain the company’s award-winning 24/7/365 AOG service.

Alexis Dufermont, VP Sales Europe – AJW Aviation, sees this new contract with Primera as further evidence of AJW’s penetration of the European aviation market. “This highlights the Company’s focus on developing relationships with European carriers of all sizes. We are proud to support another vibrant and fast-growing airline that recognises the outstanding value for money and excellent customer service that is embodied within a flexible power-by-the-hour agreement.

“Primera’s primary goal is to provide air travel services to the leisure market. As a dynamic company it has grown at a steady pace in recent years, and now offers flights from Scandinavia to over 70 destinations in the Mediterranean, Asia, the Caribbean, and the Atlantic. Operators like Primera that have seasonal peaks in their operation need the reassurance that AJW’s dispatch reliability can provide.”

AJW currently supports 69% of global fleet operators with appropriate Airbus and Boeing aircraft types and this is fully underpinned by AJW Technique, the organisation’s component repair and overhaul facility in Montreal that is focused on streamlining processes to minimise turn-times and further guarantee dispatch reliability for operators of all sizes.
