Sorry if it was discussed already. [I checked "search" and got nothing].

Aeromantenimiento [Aeroman] a subsidiary of Grupo Taca based in El Salvador International Airport, was founded in 1983 for the maintenance of five B737 that were Taca International's fleet then.

Last Thursday was officially announced that Aeroman will be in charge of the maintenance of ALL Jet Blue and America West Airbuses in 2005.

Some of the reasons are: 1) The hour cost of an air maintenance worker in the U.S. [ according to the information I got through the media ] is more than US$40, versus US$30,00 in El Salvador and 2) Aeroman during these 21 years in the airline maintenance gave them a well known reputation in the area.

This new contract will give 350 new jobs in SAL during 2005.

It's cheaper to ferry planes to El Salvador and back than to pay American labor?

And where exactly are they going to get enough qualified MT's from? I mean this is great news for TA, but are they going to be able to handle the capacity?

What would be great is if they handled their MX in house. Then again, US MX subcontractors pay pretty much like Aeroman, but some don't have the reputation (like the ones AS are going to be using). You are probably safer for HP and B6 sending their planes to Aeroman, though it would be great if they handled it in house.

SAL is not that far to ferry a plane, considering that B6 and HP would have to ferry their planes somewhere in the US, let alone Europe or Asia, which could actually be farther. Again, Aeroman probably won their contracts due to quality and efficiency, as US subcontractors probably charge the same.

Air Canada has a contract for certain checks for Jetblue in Winnipeg YWG. Does this new agreement push AC out, or will they be used for seperate functions?


buhh bye

CRPilot.

Yes, of course. The site [hangar] inside El Salvador International Airport is huge. If you want to know a little more about "aeroman" just go to:

www.taca.com, then "Business" and then again "Aerial Maintenance".

I don't know for sure, but if they have a contract with AC they MUST respect it until the expiration day. The information I read in the newspaper is for the year 2005. Nevertheless they don't give an specific date.
