Aviationscouts, a company specialising in buying and selling surplus aircraft seats, has formed a strategic alliance with aircraft cabin specialist, AeroChamp Aviation, to grow its presence in the India and the Middle East markets.
“The aviation industry has seen phenomenal growth in this region within the last 15 years” commented Thomas Bulirsch, founder and CEO of Aviationscouts GmbH. “Our target market is dominated by privately owned airlines and low-cost carriers, many of which are seeking to find ways to reduce capital expenditure while at the same time maintaining the high-quality standards of their aircraft cabin. With a large ready-to-ship inventory and all the services of a one-stop-shop, Aviationscouts brings an advantage to the region through this strategic alliance. With AeroChamp’s local presence in Mumbai and Dubai and our warehouses in Germany, we are able to provide streamlined logistics to support our customers’ operations on a global scale”.
Dr Praveen Srivastava, the founder of AeroChamp Aviation, believes the alliance will be beneficial to airlines in India and the Middle East. Srivastava claims to have sold the highest number of aircraft seats currently flying in the region over the past two decades.
“This level of expertise is extremely valuable in a region where airlines and operators are relatively young in comparison to the aviation industry in Europe and North America. Our alliance will contribute effectively to the alignment of airline costs with the maximisation of operational efficiency,” he stated.
