Farnborough, UK. 18 July 2022 . Satair, an Airbus Services company, and All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest airline, have signed an agreement under which Satair expands its Integrated Material Services (IMS) solution to deliver expendable material used on ANA’s non-Airbus fleet. In addition, the agreement extends the existing long-term IMS contract for ANA’s A320 and A380 fleet for a multi-year period.
Paul Lochab, CCO, Satair, said: “We are thrilled to be taking our IMS solution to the next level with a multi fleet coverage beyond the Airbus type and we remain grateful for the trust that ANA continues to show Satair.” “The new agreement is the result of a truly collaborative solution and highlights how Satair’s approach with IMS exceeds a traditional customer- supplier relationship,” Paul adds.
Satair is the exclusive supplier of expendable material to ANA and has delivered Integrated Material Services for the airline’s A320 fleet since 2017 and A380 fleet since 2019. With this new agreement, ANA becomes the first customer to use Satair’s IMS solution on a multi-fleet scale.
Kenshi Hamada, Vice President of Engineering & Maintenance Center Material Management, ANA, stated “We are pleased to continue our partnership with Satair and we are pleased with the flexibility their IMS solution has provided us. With the new agreement, we have collaborated to adapt the solution to meet our needs in a dynamic market.” Stéphane Ginoux, Head of North Asia region for Airbus and President of Airbus Japan commented, “ANA is a long-standing and valuable customer for Airbus in Japan, and we are
delighted to further grow our partnership, together with Satair, through this latest extension of
the IMS solution for ANA.”
