AJW Aviation has signed a five year contract with SmartLynx, the Latvian based wet-lease and charter specialist. This new power by-the-hour agreement sees the relationship between AJW and SmartLynx extending to 2019, following on from a successful five year PBH agreement signed in 2009.

The European airline provides full charter operation for its home markets of Latvia and Estonia and also wet leases its fleet of A320-200 Airbus aircraft. The existing fleet of nine aircraft, plus a planned expansion to eleven this summer, will be covered within this agreement.

As part of this contract, AJW will base tailored spare parts inventories at numerous hubs which can be accessed as and when required, illustrating AJW’s capacity to be flexible and adapt to specific customer needs. In addition, SmartLynx will benefit from AJW’s excellent AOG coverage at almost all points of operation.

Declan Meagher, Director - Europe commented, “We are delighted to continue our successful relationship with SmartLynx. Following the tender process, SmartLynx chose AJW once again due to the organisation’s ability to handle large fleets, as well as our customer support and professionalism of staff. The high quality of our AOG Service was also a critical factor in SmartLynx awarding the contract to AJW.”

Serving a global customer base of around 1,000 airlines with nearly 500 aircraft under contract, AJW offers fully integrated support solutions to airline and MRO organisations. The flexibility and range of nose-to-tail services mean that it is fast becoming the partner of choice to those seeking competitive advantage.
