AerFin and NORDAM have announced an expanded strategic-services agreement to include consignment, exchange and lease-management of spare nacelles for V2500-A5 and CFM56-5B engines used on Airbus A320 Family aircraft belonging to European operators. Under the agreement, NORDAM airline customers may access AerFin-owned components and related operational support from its main rotable-distribution base near London-Gatwick Airport. The spares allow aircraft to remain in service while NORDAM repairs their thrust reversers and nacelles, preventing potentially costly ‘aircraft-on-ground’ downtime during maintenance.
