NordStar Airlines has signed a general terms agreement (GTA) with AJW Engines which will see the latter provide engine shop visit management services for the CFM56-7B engines supporting NordStar’s fleet of Boeing 737-300 and Boeing 737-800 aircraft.AJW Group has worked with the carrier for several years providing specialist component support, but now the company will provide NordStar with its engine management service (EMS) programme.“The EMS service we offer is a tailored service whereby we continuously update the customer regarding all processes on a daily basis. In addition, we challenge the MRO to justify their repair choices keeping everyone focused,” explained Morgan Brown, a powerplant engineer for AJW Engines. “This approach not only helps to safeguard the airline from unnecessary expense, but also ensures they operate at maximum efficiency and safety.“When AJW supplies a replacement engine part on behalf of NordStar from our comprehensive stock, each part is accompanied by complete industry standard paperwork," Brown added. "Our main objective is to keep the shop visit costs for NordStar to a minimum. We ensure the agreed turnaround-times are adhered to, and that the optimum performance to achieve the longest on-wing time is achieved.”NordStar’s fleet also consists of ATR 42-500 turboprop aircraft.
