Moscow-based ASC Aviation Equipment has entered into an agreement with Boeing’s Aviall that calls for the U.S. company to supply forecasting services, technology, training and aviation material for distribution in the Russian aviation market. ASC Aviation Equipment is a subsidiary of Concern of Aviation Equipment (CAE), a State Corporation Russian Technologies company. The agreement becomes effective in the fourth quarter. Dan Komnenovich, Aviall’s president and CEO, told AIN that Boeing and Russian Technologies have a longstanding relationship with several joint ventures. The current venture is exploring Russia’s aviation services market. “Currently, 23 Russian airlines operate 263 Boeings, and according to the just-released Boeing current market outlook for Russia and the CIS, 1,080 new aircraft [from all manufacturers valued at $110 billion are expected to be delivered to the Russia/CIS marketplace over the next 20 years and they will all need spare parts,” he said. “The new agreement will give customers access to information technology infrastructure allowing them to link with Russian Technologies in a single IT system. The linkage will help airlines increase their aircraft utilization, reduce or avoid AOG situations and reduce operational costs.”
