AJW will continue to be responsible for the 24/7 planning and delivery of the airline’s demand and supply requirements from inventory management across easyJet’s extensive network; full component repair and overhaul services as well as the provision, storage and distribution of all rotable, consumable and expendable material. 

A key operational enhancement will be the introduction of an EU-hub in Malpensa, Italy, which will serve to further enhance operational efficiency across Europe.  The EU-hub will supplement the current UK-hub to maximise up-time, availability and dispatch reliability.

The new seven-year contract introduces innovative solutions that will provide step-change improvements for the airline. AJW is developing and investing in process re-engineering and automation tools to drive superior performance, cost reduction and operational excellence across the board.  AJW Technique, the Group’s Maintenance Repair and Overhaul facility, will continue to play a significant role in the new contract as it repairs and overhauls easyJet components.

The re-award of the contract to AJW was the result of a thorough tender process which started in January 2019. AJW emerged once again as the front-runner for this partnership, given its proven ability as a global supply chain solutions provider with award-winning 24/7/365 support and logistics services.

Brendan McConnellogue, easyJet’s Director of Engineering and Maintenance, explains the main deciding factors for selecting AJW: “EasyJet has worked with AJW for the past four years on supply chain management and we're confident that this new contract will ensure we remain focused on improving efficiency and value so we are able enhance our operational performance, whilst ensuring that safety remains our highest priority.”
 
Christopher Whiteside, President and Chief Executive Office of AJW Group, commented: “We are delighted to continue our partnership and look forward to seeing the benefits of our innovative solutions which will allow easyJet to continue delivering value with an exceptional customer experience.

“This contract renewal strengthens AJW’s position as the world’s leading independent provider of component support programmes and the contract length demonstrates the confidence that leading airlines, like easyJet, place on our ability to go above and beyond to deliver at every step. This is a ground-breaking achievement for AJW Group and I am justifiably very proud of our team.”
