Airbus: aircraft lifecycle centre in China
Airbus has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the city of Chengdu and Tarmac Aerosave for the development of the first sustainable aircraft “lifecycle” service centre in China. This facility will offer sustainable solutions to manage the entire lifecycle of aircraft, from aircraft parking and storage, to maintenance, upgrades, conversions, dismantling and recycling.
“This is another concrete contribution to the aviation industry's quest for sustainability, supporting the principle of a circular economy in line with Airbus’ purpose to pioneer sustainable aerospace. This unique centre will support the expansion of Airbus’ aviation services while enabling the implementation of China's “green industry” strategy”, said Klaus Roewe, SVP Airbus customer services. (cj)
