PARIS-VATRY AIRPORT TEAMS UP WITH TARMAC AEROSAVE FROM JUNE 2020
TARMAC Aerosave will operate its 4th site at the Marne airport from June. Already established at 3 other sites (Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées, Teruel and Toulouse-Francazal), it offers 4 services to aircraft operators and owners: aircraft storage (maintaining flight conditions), transition, maintenance and green aircraft recycling. Ranked no. 1 in Europe for aircraft storage, TARMAC Aerosave employs 370 people.
It chose Paris-Vatry due to the platform’s ability to meet the company’s development needs following the COVID-19 crisis. The aircraft maintenance hangar which is under construction and which will be operational by the end of 2020 is also an asset, allowing TARMAC Aerosave to offer maintenance services at Paris-Vatry to aircraft operators and owners.
“This new collaboration is part of a new long-term project with an industry leader. It allows Paris-Vatry to diversify its service offering and it is part of a dynamic initiative. The airline industry will have new requirements in the coming years following the COVID-19 crisis, requirements which we will be able to meet. During the crisis, our platform has been able to demonstrate its processing and mobilisation capacity, and this will continue to be the case thanks to TARMAC Aerosave, which we are happy to welcome as part of its development.“, declared Christophe Parois, Director of Paris-Vatry Airport.
“We are delighted with this collaboration with Paris-Vatry, a global benchmark platform for aviation logistics which has very recently demonstrated its efficiency. This new location allows us to meet the requests of all customers and to prepare more calmly for the next re-deliveries and long-term storage. “ said Patrick Lecer, president of TARMAC Aerosave.
TARMAC Aerosave’s new location at the Marne platform has several components: from June 2020, the storage of aircraft and minor maintenance to keep them airworthy. The second aspect being studied will relate to the use of the maintenance hangar to develop MRO (“Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul”) activity. Finally, economic and technical feasibility studies will be conducted in the coming months on the use of old airport facilities as additional parking, and potentially to develop green aircraft recycling activity.
