Al-Futtaim Logistics, a leading regional provider of innovative supply chain solutions and logistics services, has officially announced the launch of its new Aerospace Logistics division in the UAE.
This strategic move, unveiled during the Dubai Airshow 2023, follows its initial soft launch at MRO-AIME Middle East 2023.
Al-Futtaim’s Aerospace Logistics division is set to serve a wide array of clients in the aviation industry, including Airlines, Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) operators, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Parts Suppliers, and Asset Leasing Companies. The division offers a comprehensive range of services that encompass airside deliveries at major UAE airports, multiple carrier options, Technician Onboard Charters (TOC), and a 24/7 centralized aerospace operations center with global reach. Furthermore, the company provides storage solutions adhering to the stringent standards of The General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) and ASA-100.
Dr. Raman Kumar, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Logistics, expressed enthusiasm about the division’s launch, highlighting the company’s unique position to deliver exceptional service quality and flexibility.
“Our customer-centric and solutions-oriented approach, combined with 300+ stations for our 24/7 AOG operations and comprehensive end-to-end solutions including storage and distribution within the UAE, positions us as a preferred partner for aerospace companies of all sizes,” he stated.
Dubai’s significant role as the 7th largest importer of aircraft and spacecraft parts globally underscores the strategic importance of this expansion. The Middle East is projected to experience a 3.2% growth in the MRO services market over the next two decades, indicating a robust demand for efficient and rapid aerospace logistics.
The inauguration of Al-Futtaim’s Aerospace Logistics division in the UAE marks a significant milestone for Al-Futtaim Logistics, cementing its position as a leader in providing advanced and specialized logistics services in the region and beyond.
