Aviation logistics: up and down to the last detail
To overcome an AOG situation, aviation logistics experts must act fast. Any detail missing can increase the criticality of the project.
The average dry lease cost – which only counts the plane, without the crew – of a commercial airplane varies from USD 50,000 to USD 110,000 per month. A large airline in a Western country can end up spending up to USD 150,000 an hour on an Aircraft on Ground (AOG) situation.
When there’s an AOG situation, literally every minute counts.
In today’s story, our Aerospace team in Canada was getting everything ready to ship a GE CF34-3B1 aircraft engine just repaired by Avmax Aviation from Winnipeg (Canada) to Alzey (Germany) on time to avoid more losses for the airline.
“Winnipeg, we have a problem”
A few hours before departure, the airline let our aviation logistics team know that the aircraft engine could not be loaded to the cargo plane.
At the beginning, they were not clear about the reason.
The first information was that the engine was too big to fit into the X-Ray station.
But our experts know that this have never been a drawback in YWG.
