British Airways has selected Airbus Flight Hour
Services (FHS) to provide aircraft inventory support for its
A380 fleet of aircraft.
The FHS agreement, which will run for
15 years, provides an extensive scope of A380 line replaceable
units (LRUs), spare parts, repairs and logistics services to
British Airways Engineering.
In addition, it will feature the
deployment of a non-exclusive pool of A380 LRU spare parts at
London Heathrow Airport, the major A380 hub in Europe.
Didier Lux, EVP Customer Services at Airbus
said, “We are delighted to welcome British Airways as our first
A380 FHS customer in Europe. This strengthens both our worldwide
market position and ability to expand our presence in this area.”
British Airways has ordered 12 A380s,
which are scheduled for delivery from 2013 onwards.
