Boeing to supply parts for Airbus A320

Boeing is to supply parts to British Airways for A320 jetliners made by Airbus. Under the agreement, Boeing will manage and maintain a global exchange inventory of parts for Airbus’ A320 and A320neo single-aisle aircraft.

The deal is part of efforts by the world’s largest planemaker into the higher-margin services business that includes aircraft parts and analytics – estimated to be worth $50 billion a year in revenue in a decade.

Boeing has also signed an agreement through its subsidiary Jeppesen to provide United Airlines with analytics services to help the carrier optimize crew planning operations through its entire fleet.
