Boeing has signed a multi-year agreement with
Tecnam to be the sole provider of aftermarket spare parts and
distribution services for the P2012 Traveller, Tecnam’s first
commuter airline aircraft.
Boeing will assume distribution
responsibilities, including forecasting, ordering and delivering
all original equipment manufacturer (OEM) genuine replacement
parts for the P2012 Traveller through its Aviall distribution
“We are thrilled to provide our industry leading
distribution services for this new aircraft,” said William Ampofo,
vice president, Business & General Aviation, Boeing Global
Services. “Our global supply chain and agile distribution systems
will keep these planes in the air for many years to come.”
The P2012 has completed European Aviation Safety

customer, Boston-based regional airline Cape Air.
