PDQ Airspares has announced that South Korean low-fare airline Jeju Air has signed up to PDQ’s Next Gen ConsumableCare programmes in a multi-year, multi-line fixed price JIT (just-in-time) agreement.
Jeju Air’s operations personnel will deal directly with PDQ's central Asian office in Singapore, ensuring that high levels of customer care, service and optimal response times are maintained throughout the duration of the contract. PDQ emphasised that its strategic location in Asia is key to providing greater understanding of the expectations and demands of its regional customers.
Jeju Air offers scheduled domestic and charted services between Jeju and the South Korean mainland, with an operational fleet of 20 Boeing 737-800s.
The JIT Supply programme will enable PDQ to ease the logistical burden on Jeju's procurement department by providing a single guaranteed source for an agreed list of high consumption consumables, whilst also ensuring full availability of parts with minimal delivery times. With the reassurance that the cost of each part is fixed, Jeju will be further equipped to budget and forecast more accurately on maintenance and operational costs.
