    UIA has celebrated its 20th anniversary

    commercial airline operates a

    fleet of approx. 20 aircraft,

    produced by both Russian and

    Western manufacturers.

    How ever, due to the ongoing

    w esternization of the f leet, the

    demand for relevant aircraft

    spare parts is continuously

    increasing, w hile the existing

    deficiencies in the local supply

    chain keep sabotaging the profits

    of Russian carriers.

    Most Russian carriers employ a

    team of approx. 6 procurement

    managers w ho are w orking w ith

    quite a long list of 50-70 spare

    parts vendors. Should a carrier

    employ a smaller team, it w ould

    be forced to deal w ith a massive

    w orkload and thus the company

    w ould certainly face a number of

    serious human-factor related

    issues. The added stress may

    contribute to the acquisition of

    w rong or unnecessary parts

    w hich sometimes may account

    for up to 20% of all airlines

    purchases. How ever, more

    and more complex supply
