Panel Discussion: The Global Fleet, NG and Retirement Forecasts – What Does It Mean For MRO?
  • Tuesday, May 29, 9:40 AM - 10:40 AM
What impact will the NG fleet have on repair scheduling and financial planning? Should providers shift focus to work associated on NG aircraft, look to end-of-life markets or diversify services to accommodate for both? How will the dramatic forecasted growth in Asian markets influence global MRO trends? With operators set for further consolidation, how can suppliers manage integration within the supply chain? Is OEM alignment the only way for MROs to build a business case for the NG fleet? Expectations for retirement selections – how will these reposition the fleet demographic? What is the projected impact of Brexit for the aviation supply chain? Will the surrounding uncertainty prompt a shift in operators’ strategy?

Panel Discussion: Maintenance Procurement Strategies – Ensuring Efficiencies in the Supply Chain
  • Tuesday, May 29, 11:20 AM - 12:10 PM
What macro trends are influencing airlines’ planning for MRO procurement? With airline unit revenues in further decline, will historical purchasing factors (e.g. capacity, location, strong relationship etc.) be overtaken by a stricter cost management approach? What digital innovations are driving procurement value? What is the current state of digitisation, and what impact could a digitally integrated supply chain have in driving business value? As we begin to see a rise in aircraft retirements, how can suppliers avoid investment in surplus assets and ensure they are investing in the right parts, at the right time?
