VAS Aero Services acquires four Airbus A330-300s and 11 engines from American

VAS Aero Services, a global leader in aviation logistics and aftermarket services, announced it has acquired four Airbus A330-300 airframes and 11 Pratt & Whitney PW4168 engines from Fort Worth, TX-based American Airlines, the largest commercial air carrier in the US.

The four Airbus A330-300 widebody aircraft were retired from American’s fleet in 2020. Adding to the breadth and depth of VAS’s already significant aftermarket parts inventory, the airframes will be allocated for teardown and the surplus parts distributed through VAS’s worldwide airline operator customer base.
The Pratt & Whitney PW4168 engines will be placed with VAS’s aftermarket services partner, SR Technics, for engine lease pool support and ultimately disassembled to increase their Used Serviceable Material (USM) availability. The addition of the PW engines further strengthens VAS’s Supply Program with SR Technics and offers major end users favorable green-time leasing options and vital USM solutions.
