Summary

Partnership between Airbus and Rolls-Royce enabling Cathay Pacific to access engine and aircraft parts through the same process.

Airbus and Rolls-Royce have created a new integrated parts availability service for the Cathay Pacific Airways A350 fleet, which encompasses both airframe and engine Line-Replaceable-Unit (LRU) components. The service integrates the Airbus “Flight Hour Services” (FHS) and the Rolls-Royce TotalCare Availability service through a seamless operational interface. 
Through this partnership between Airbus and Rolls-Royce, Cathay Pacific will be able to access both engine and aircraft parts through the same process to improve speed of response. Supported by both manufacturers, this innovative approach to managing airframe and engine parts provides a cost-effective and lean operational solution for the airline. 
The airframe and engine parts will be hosted in the same warehouse in Hong Kong so that they can be made available locally when needed to secure the airline’s A350 operations. Airbus and Rolls-Royce believe that this approach will suit the needs of other customers and will seek further opportunities to develop seamless integrated services for the A350.
