Ft. Lauderdale, FL & Bournemouth, England – GA Telesis and its affiliate GA Telesis, UK Ltd. announced that they have acquired one (1) Boeing 747-300 aircraft from Air India. The aircraft will enter the GA Telesis disassembly production line in the United Kingdom, and the disassembly and remarketing will be led by GA Telesis, UK in cooperation with the GA Telesis Aircraft Systems Group (“ASG”) and Turbine Engine Group (“TEG”), respectively.

The aircraft will be dismantled by an Aircraft Fleet Recycling Association (“AFRA”) accredited company, on behalf of GA Telesis. AFRA-accredited companies use processes that encompass the industry’s best practices in an environmentally-responsible manner and through strict environmental controls and recycling planning.

“Since our Lufthansa A300-600 project announcement a few months ago, we have commenced an A320-200 project that is near completion, and now, the addition of the 747-300 puts us in the clear leadership position for disassemblies in Europe,” said David Daughters, Managing Director of GA Telesis UK. “In addition, we have an additional three widebody aircraft (Boeing and Airbus) scheduled for disassembly on European soil during the first half of 2009,” he added.
