LONDON – Aventure Aviation is negotiating the teardown of an idle Air New Zealand A320 for spare parts. The U.S based company sees many opportunities in aftermarket sales of spare parts and components to the airline sector.

Aventure Aviation is overseeing the tearing down, reconditioning and resale of parts for a former Air Zealand aircraft parted in Roswell, New Mexico.

The Airbus A320 in questions bears a manufacturing serial number of 2533 and was formerly registered as ZK-OJM. The airframe is currently being dismantled be Aventure. 

Aventure’s First A320

Ebrahim Zakaria, Aventure’s Senior Director, Business Development, said: “This A320 marks our first teardown of 2023. We expect a surge of acquisitions to bolster our A320 portfolio as we look to diversify our product and customer base further.”

This may be Aventure’s first A320 but certainly not likely to be their last, as many airlines are retiring their older A320s for new NEO models. 

Aventure President Talha Faruqi stated: “Aventure continues to offer a unique global aviation investment platform for investors, leasing companies, and owners,” 

He asserted Aventure’s expertise by saying: “With our experience with aircraft teardowns and a significant global customer base, we have solutions to deploy capital, provide asset management services, and material consignments for stakeholders.”

“We continue to see inquiries from investors looking for options in diversifying their portfolios,” he concluded.

Continuous expansion

The U.S based company is always in active discussions and dialogues with airlines, operators, owners, and financial institutions including banks and instance and lessors to capitalise on inactive aircraft.

This presented a good opportunity for the company to increase its business during the COVID pandemic, when many airliners remained aground.

As air travel is picking up, Aventure Aviation sees strong opportunities in the reselling of aircraft parts, to airliners or as spares. Aventure Aviation will be in attendance at the Airline Economic Conference, which presents good business and networking opportunities to meet with respective buyers and sellers. 

Aircraft Recycling Business

The business has gained the spotlight during the pandemic where both scrapyards and aircraft spares and components dealers are capitalising on idle aircraft. 

In an article published by ainonline.com, it is said that more than 90% of aircraft parts could be sold or reused in non-aviation-related disciplines.

The effects of the global pandemic has given the recycling business a boost and shows just how valuable aircraft parts are even in the non-aviation-related business.
