Freight AirBridgeCargo joins International Airlines Technical Pool (IATP)
AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has announced, that it officially joined International Airlines Technical Pool (IATP).
The accession of ABC was published over the course of the 118th IATP Conference held in Indonesia. ABC has become the 114th airline to join the global association.
Essentially, the IATP aims to streamline maintenance pooling activities when aircraft are on ground (AOG). ABC currently operates a fleet of modern Boeing 747 freighters, which allows the airline to promptly respond to AOG-related cases.
By joining IATP, ABC will offer these solutions to other IATP members. On the other side, the freight airline will experience help from other members if needed. Additionally, IATP offers an opportunity for airlines and services providers to exchange ideas and to communicate with industry colleagues.
Sergey Lazarev, General Director of AirBridgeCargo Airlines said: “It is a great honor and achievement to join IATP, one of the industry’s oldest associations with a more than 50-year history. With our vast experience in oversize cargo transportation, extensive route network, and qualified team, and stocks of spare parts in several stations, we would be able to support our partners in any AOG situation, guaranteeing cost-effective and timely logistics solutions."
Mr. San Lucktong, IATP Chairperson, added: “AirBridgeCargo, as well as the other five new members who joined our global organization at the 118th Conference, will not only contribute to but will also benefit from the technical resources sharing."
IATP was founded over 50 years ago and is one of the oldest associations in the aviation industry. The association consists of 114 airline and 36 service provider members. Original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are also part of the group. All members have access to joint technical resources, covering aircraft spare parts, ground equipment or line maintenance.
