Al-Futtaim Logistics Launches UAE Aerospace Logistics Division
Al-Futtaim Logistics, has today announced the official launch of its Aerospace Logistics division in the UAE. The inauguration, coinciding with the Dubai Airshow 2023, follows a soft launch at the MRO-AIME Middle East 2023.
Al-Futtaim’s Aerospace Logistics services caters to a diverse clientele including Airlines, Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) operators, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Parts Suppliers, and Asset Leasing Companies.
It offers a comprehensive suite of solutions that includes airside deliveries at major UAE airports, multiple carrier options, Technician Onboard Charters (TOC), and 24/7 centralised aerospace operations with global coverage.
In addition, the company provides storage solutions for customers that are compliant with The General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) and ASA-100 standards.
Commenting on the announcement, Dr. Raman Kumar, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Logistics, said: “We are pleased to launch our Aerospace Logistics division in the UAE.
"As part of a UAE-based conglomerate with a global network, we are uniquely positioned to deliver unmatched service quality and flexibility to meet the needs of our customers in this burgeoning sector.
"Driven by a customer-centric and solutions-oriented approach, our 24/7 AOG operations with 300+ stations, combined with our end-to-end solutions, including storage and distribution hubs within the UAE, make us the go-to partner for aerospace companies of any size.”
Dubai is the 7th largest importer of parts for aircraft and spacecraft in the world. Over the next two decades, the Middle East is predicted to see 3.2% continued growth in the MRO services market, setting the region on a heading for soaring demand for efficient and rapid aerospace logistics.
