TARMAC Aerosave has opened a fourth site at Paris-Vatry airport, in the Grand Est region of France. This site, in addition to the historic site of Tarbes and to the Teruel (Sapin) and Toulouse-Francazal sites, brings the overall capacity of the aircraft storage group to 270 aircraft. The Paris-Vatry site can accommodate all types of aircraft, for associated storage and maintenance service only. A former NATO base, known for its large reception capacity, a runway of nearly 4,000 m, 24-hour opening time and freight activities, the Paris-Vatry platform provides TARMAC Aerosave with parking areas of more than 60,000 m².

TARMAC Aerosave can now accommodate 30 aircraft of all types, according to Group standards: parking adapted to the tonnage, and maintenance exclusively carried out by TARMAC Aerosave staff based in Vatry. Rémi Paillassa has been appointed Project Manager for the Paris-Vatry site and has already taken up his duties on site. This new site offers TARMAC Aerosave customers a reception point in northern France. TARMAC Aerosave is thus positioned in the immediate vicinity of the main European airports (London, Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Brussels) providing airlines with a "rear base" for short or medium-term storage.

“We are delighted with this collaboration with Paris-Vatry, a global benchmark platform for aviation logistics which has very recently demonstrated its efficiency. This new location allows us to meet the requests of all customers and to prepare more calmly for the next re-deliveries and long-term storage. " said Patrick Lecer, president of TARMAC Aerosave.

“This collaboration is part of a new long-term industrial project with a leading company in the field. It allows Paris-Vatry to diversify its service offer and is part of a positive dynamic. The aviation sector will have new needs in the coming years, following the COVID-19 crisis, to which we will be able to respond. Our platform was able to demonstrate its ability to process and mobilize during the crisis, and the same will apply tomorrow thanks to TARMAC Aerosave, who we are happy to welcome in the framework of the development programme." said Christophe Parois, director of Paris-Vatry airport.
