HAECO ITM Ltd., a member of the HAECO Group, has acquired a Cathay Dragon Airbus A330-300 (MSN083) for disassembly and has partnered with GA Telesis’ Component Solutions Group (“GA Telesis CSG”) for the distribution and resale of the parts removed from the aircraft. Once the components are recertified, they will support HAECO ITM’s inventory pool as well as GA Telesis’ customer base worldwide.
A joint venture between HAECO and Cathay Pacific Airways, HAECO ITM offers services that include the provision and pool management of aircraft components. HAECO ITM currently manages a fleet of over 290 aircraft from an inventory pool located in Hong Kong.
