Mumbai: Airbus, Airspace Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd and Airlogic Ltd have established a new spare parts and logistics support joint venture - Spares Support Solutions India, Pvt. Ltd. (SSSI).

The joint venture will maintain an inventory of rotable components used on all types of Airbus commercial aircraft by operators in India for outright sale, exchange and customized pooling arrangements. SSSI will also offer sale/leaseback of component inventories; the purchase of inventories associated with fleet phase-outs; and localized, just-in-time, support to both airlines and MROs in India.

The JV is split 26% between Airbus and 37% each for the other partners. Airspace Infrastructure has expertise in bonded warehousing and compliance with the Indian customs regime while Airlogic specializes in component trading, distribution, repair management and spares exchange programs.

"We are proud to be among the first to make the commitment to locally support Airbus’ valued Indian customers – the platform will not only offer component and logistics support, but will also provide engineering and logistics advice and assistance to its clients," said SSSI Chairman and EADS Vice President for Business Engineering, Christophe Desages.

Gulperi Kurdoglu will be the Managing Director of SSSI. Ms. Kurdoglu, an aeronautical engineer, has over 15 years experience in Airbus engineering and technical component planning, procurement and component pool design and implementation.

The new venture represents a significant investment in aftermarket customer support for Airbus's Indian customers.
