Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Thursday, 17 July 2008

Airbus has signed a cooperation agreement with Blue Sky Alliance, covering the distribution of Consumables, Expendables and Standard Hardware (CES) for Airbus aircraft. Blue Sky Alliance GmbH is a joint venture of three leading distributors, Avio-Diepen BV, Interturbine Logistik GmbH and Satair A/S.

By launching this CES access service, customers will in future have the choice to enter into individual agreements with Blue Sky Alliance to access a portfolio of up to two million part numbers from over 3,000 key suppliers through a sole source. With this initiative, Airbus will offer a new cost efficient way to procure Airbus consumable, expendable and standard hardware parts from a new focal point.

For Airbus operators, entering agreements with Blue Sky Alliance ensures an always bid guarantee, a 24/7 single point of contact, on-line access and state-of-the-art electronic ordering, fixed lead times combined with fixed competitive prices based on high purchasing volumes and substantially reduced administrative workload will be offered.

With a global network of 19 distribution centres, Blue Sky Alliance will ensure their regional presence worldwide, holding an inventory representing over US$ 200 million worth of parts. Headquartered near Hamburg in Germany, Blue Sky Alliance has opened their Customer Support in-house office at Airbus Material, Logistics and Suppliers headquarters in Hamburg.
