Rotterdam, Netherlands - The Dutch aircraft part-out company APOC Aviation has acquired an A319-1oo jet from the Irish leasing company SMBC Aviation for tear-down.

The aircraft with factory serial number MSN 3380 was previously operated by Spanish flag-carrier Iberia as EC-KMD. It made its first flight on January 19, 2008.

It is the fourth A320 family acquired by the company this year for disassembly. Two are already being parted out in Marana, Arizona, and this particular aircraft is already located at eCube in Wales, awaiting the easing of COVID-19 restrictions before work can begin.

Over the next few months, the secured A319 parts will be assessed, and then APOC’s audited group of repair stations worldwide will return the stock to serviceable status. All stock will be located at their Rotterdam warehouse forming part of the Company’s rapidly expanding inventory of spares for sale and lease.
