Mexican carrier Interjet has contracted Aveos to repair and overhaul all components on its fleet of Airbus A320s.

The five-year deal includes the establishment of a main base stock in Toluca, Mexico, and access to an inventory pool. Aveos will also help the airline develop its own component and repair capabilities.

“This contract is a great step forward for us, allowing Aveos to bring its expertise to a world-class airline, such as Interjet,” says Aveos VP Jerry Kent.

Aveos says it started preliminary work with Interjet in December, using its new facility in Montreal, which will be fully operational mid-year.

“The five-year contract opens the door to further potential work with Interjet as the airline expands its fleet of A320s from 24 to 40 by November 2012 and as Aveos expands its global client base,” says the MRO.
