September News Round Up
Inside AAG this week we launched our 2030 Growth Strategy under the theme of ‘New Frontiers’.
New Frontiers’ represents a future-focused outlook for AAG, drawing on decades of aerospace knowledge and expertise. The strategy sets direction for our teams and is underpinned by five pillars, representing key areas for focus and investment for AAG in the coming years. (1) People & Culture; (2) Customer Service Delivery; (3) Digital, Business Excellence & Innovation; (4) Environment, Social and Governance; and (5) Strategic Business Growth. These pillars are supported by a recalibrated company purpose, vision, and values which brings together a unified vision for the group.
What ‘New Frontiers’ means for customers is a commitment by all business units to increase our focus on excellence in customer service delivery and continue to develop our people and a company culture that will lead to positive outcomes for all stakeholders. It means we will lead on the ESG agenda in our sector which will support the ESG objectives of customers in terms of sustainable supply chain performance. At a grass-roots level, you will see an increased focus on TAT delivery across our Shannon-based facilities alongside a greater focus on consistency and transparency of data throughout all aspects of our service delivery.
We thank our existing customers for your continued business and forward to welcoming you back to Shannon during the 2023-2024 maintenance season. We invite prospective customers to contact us if you would like to arrange a visit to our Shannon facilities. Our team will be happy to showcase our capabilities and discuss the aerospace services and solutions we can offer to support your fleet.

The team secured new business through additional aircraft types added to our scope of approval including the A320-NEO, B737-MAX, A330-CEO and B777. The team successfully conducted several unscheduled ARCs over the summer for a busy airline which necessitated close coordination with the regulator to secure in a timely manner.
We also welcomed Siti, a new Graduate CAMO Engineer to the team from the Institute of Technology in Carlow. She holds an Honours Degree in Aerospace Engineering and a Diploma of Technology in Avionics Maintenance from the University of Kuala Lumpur. We look forward to supporting Siti in her new role.
