Viracopos International Airport (VCP), in Campinas (São Paulo state), is the sixth busiest in Brazil. In 2019, it reported a record number of passengers –more than 10.5 million throughout the year– and moved more than 220 thousand tons of cargo.

Today story happened in Viracopos on a Friday. A problem with an Embraer E190 aircraft turbine generated an Airplane / Aircraft on the ground (AOG) situation, which can result in daily losses to airlines from USD20,000 to USD150,000.

The fast and the expeditious

In this situation, all the teams involved must work even faster and more precise than usual. The airline’s team quickly requested our time critical cargo team in Brazil to go for a GE CF34-10E7 engine that was under repair in Belgium. They had already solved a similar situation, moving very efficiently a PW127M turbine between Canada and Brazil.

Sharp as a tack, our team organized the departure of the turbine from Brussels-National/Zaventem Airport (BRU) exactly on the same Monday the repair was completed. The motor arrived perfectly on Wednesday morning at Viracopos Airport, after a brief and safe stopover at Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport (AMS).

At Europartners, we have the best critical cargo teams in more than 70 offices around the world, including our group brands such as Expedited America Brazil.
