Transworld to operate Bombardier Dubai depot
Dubai, December 10, 2012
UAE-based Transworld Aviation said it has signed a parts distribution centre agreement with Canadian aircraft manufacturer, Bombardier Aerospace, to operate the Dubai depot for Bombardier aircraft parts.
Transworld Aviation is a major supplier of aircraft parts to both the commercial and military aviation sectors in the UAE.
The large facility, located in the Jebel Ali Free Zone area in Dubai, will allow for an augmented inventory capacity and uses a hitech Radio Frequency Inventory Tracking system. The temperature-controlled facility is fully staffed and operational 24/7 to cater to the diversified needs of Bombardier operators.
The move of Bombardier's Dubai parts depot to Transworld Aviation's facility was successfully completed in September and is now operational to support operators in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said a senior official.
"The UAE is becoming a regional hub with a significant role to play in the aviation supply chain. The long term infrastructure investments made by Transworld Aviation will support the operations of both commercial and defence sectors," remarked Transworld Aviation chairman Abdullah Al Sulaimani.
"Our state-of-the-art, ergonomically designed warehouse facility is structured to cater to the diversified needs of aviation OEMs from all over the world. We have a great working relationship with Bombardier Aerospace and hope to see it grow further in the future," he noted.
It also offers service and support for parts distribution and supply chain solutions to customers in the Middle East, South Asia, Africa and the Far East.-TradeArabia News Service
