Boom time for the businesses that keep airlines flying

As a provider of supply chain management services to manufacturers, operators and vendors involved in the global aviation and aerospace industry, Davies Turner was interested by a report in the Financial Times indicating that business is booming for companies that help to keep airlines flying.

The report indicates that repair and maintenance specialists are working overtime as supply chain issues persist.
In the article, Eric Mendelson, co-president of Heico, a Florida-based company that is one of the world’s leading independent suppliers of replacement parts is quoted as saying that the [maintenance] market is incredibly strong.
Kevin Michaels, head of Michigan-based consultancy AeroDynamic Advisory is reported to estimate that the world’s airlines would spend more than USD110 billion on maintenance, including labour and material, or about 14 per cent of total revenues.
