British supplier AJW Group orders ex-Air Malta Airbus A319 for teardown

Montreal, Canada - British spare part supplier AJW Group has ordered an Airbus A319 (MSN2186) aircraft for teardown. The 15-year old aircraft was previously operated by Air Malta and has two CFMI CFM56-5B6/P engines and APS3200 Auxiliary Power Unit.

After teardown, the A319 components will be recertified at AJW Group’s maintenance hub in Montreal (AJW Technique), OEMs and other strategic vendors. The high-quality parts will be stored at AJW Group’s HQ in Sussex, UK and shipped to the strategic hubs around the world ready for exchange and sale to support A319 and A320 operators.

At AJW Group we have an extensive inventory of Airbus spare parts located in strategic hubs across the world. This teardown is the first in a series of airframe and engine teardowns this year as part of our commitment to ensure that our valued-customers’ operations are supported through access to our pool of high-quality components,

Ian Malin, Chief Financial Officer of AJW Group, said.

“As the global fleet of Airbus A320 family aircraft continues to mature, these teardown projects enable us to react to the shortage on the market and enable us to bolster our inventory and cement our position as the ‘go-to’ source for A320 material for the next decade,” Malin added.
