Avialogistics, a leading provider of business aviation services offering VIP aircraft cleaning at business airports across the UK, will be highlighting its expertise in ‘working at height’ at EBACE, Geneva from May 17-19. Avialogistics’ Managing Director Tracy Ring will showcase the company’s internal and external aircraft cleaning capabilities as the company invests in specialist access equipment to enhance its service provision to a growing client base.
New Working at Height Equipment
“We have taken delivery of several pieces of new equipment to enhance our ‘working at height’ capabilities,” said Tracy. “The investment includes a new scaffolding tower and a specialist ladder that fits over aircraft wings. We have also ordered a hydraulic boom, due for delivery in May, which will enable us to access parts of an aircraft that are currently very difficult to reach. This will be a first at Farnborough Airport and we will be hosting an open day in the early summer to demonstrate our enhanced capabilities to our customers.
“The new equipment enables us to offer even safer access and fall protection when our experienced cleaning personnel are working at height. Working at height is a critical issue in this industry and we aim to be at the forefront regarding health and safety,” added Tracy.
Restocking Service at Farnborough
With effect from 1st May, Avialogistics, in conjunction with TAG Aviation, will offer a new restocking service at Farnborough Airport. The company will provide dry stores, beverages and wines delivered direct to the aircraft door at the request of crew or handling agents, enabling TAG to offer an additional service to its Farnborough customers. “We have a dedicated, fully stocked, delivery van which will deliver to aircraft on a short turnaround or to those requiring just a few necessities but not full catering,” said Tracy Ring.
Expanded Cleaning Services and New Offices at Luton
Avialogistics has moved to new, bigger offices at Luton as a result of an expanded cleaning service now being offered at the airport. “Gama’s Luton-based fleet is growing and Avialogistics’ services at the airport have been bolstered to cater for demand,” said Tracy. In addition, Avialogistics has invested in new portable scaffold tower equipment at Luton, which will enable the specialist staff to increase their capabilities for working on the Apron. “This gives us a unique advantage,” explained Tracy. “As there is no hangarage at Luton for visiting aircraft, we were previously unable to provide an aircraft washing service. The portable scaffold tower equipment overcomes this obstacle and we can now offer our full range of VIP cleaning services to visitors.”
