Weybridge, Surrey. In a joint announcement today, BAE Systems Regional Aircraft and Ansett Spares & Services, as a first step to developing a long-term relationship, have signed an agreement under which Ansett will relocate its current operations and inventory at Heathrow to Regional Aircraft's Spares Logistics Centre at Weybridge, Surrey. The inventory includes spares for civil aircraft of all major commercial aircraft manufacturers.

Additionally, Ansett has also purchased a substantial amount of surplus BAe 146/Avro RJ spares stock from Regional Aircraft to add to its existing inventory. This will enhance the company's ability to support its expanding marketing strategy for growth in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Ansett has comprehensive inventories of spares maintained at its sales and distribution centres in Heathrow, UK, Melbourne, Australia and Los Angeles, USA. Additionally, to efficiently service its customers, the company has an established and growing network of sales/customer service centres which are strategically located in close proximity to important civil aviation markets throughout the world.

Sean McGovern, Operations Director for Regional Aircraft said: "This agreement with Ansett Spares & Services is a major step forward for us and builds upon the restructuring we have undertaken in our own spares operations in the past year. Ansett is the first company to join us at Weybridge and we look forward to ensuring that their tenure at the facility is highly successful." The executive added, "We are equally excited by the long-term collaboration prospects offered and we look forward to working with Ansett to identify and pursue new opportunities"

Under the agreement Ansett has leased dedicated office and warehouse facilities at BAE Systems Weybridge Spares Logistics Centre and Ansett staff will retain full operational responsibility for the management and shipping of its spares into and out of the facility. Regional Aircraft will provide warehouse space and handling services for Ansett's heavy, oversized components at its Prestwick Logistics Centre facility in Scotland.

"We are especially pleased with our agreement with BAE Systems, and the purchase of surplus BAe 146/Avro RJ spares inventory as it will greatly enhance our product lines to our customer base for this aircraft series", said Gregory.R.Quinlan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ansett. "This agreement with BAE Systems will enhance our global marketing plan for growth in Europe, Middle East and Africa and will provide a broad range of product and superior service to our customers worldwide", Quinlan concluded.

Members of the Board are Sean McGovern and Rob Hearn, of BAE Systems; Gregory R. Quinlan and Michael L. Tenzer, of Ansett.
