Houng Wang, Senior Vice President of China Airlines, said, “We are delighted to enter into this broad long-term partnership with our key partner, Satair Group. Out of this programme we foresee clearly reduced total cost of operation and higher availability of materials at the time of need, thus resulting in premium flight quality service ‎to our passengers and cargo customers.”

 Paul Lochab, Chief Commercial Officer of Satair Group said, “Airlines want to focus on their core business of serving passengers’ needs and entrust operational support activities such as materials management to experts. Our solutions are tailor-made for the supply chain requirements of airlines, MROs and OEMs who want to outsource their non-core activities – such as material management – to ensure total availability where and when they need it.”
