British Airways has signed a 15-year flight hour services (FHS) agreement with Airbus to provide aircraft inventory support for its A380 fleet of aircraft.

Under the agreement, Airbus will provide an extensive scope of A380 line replaceable units (LRUs), spare parts, repairs and logistics services to British Airways Engineering.

Airbus will also deploy a non-exclusive pool of A380 LRU spare parts at London Heathrow Airport, the major A380 hub in Europe.

Currently, British Airways operates a fleet of more than 80 Airbus A320 Family aircraft, with the company scheduled to receive 12 more A380s in 2013.
