Aventure Acquires CRJ/ERJ Inventory
Aventure Aviation has acquired over 13,000 CRJ/ERJ expendable and rotable spare parts from Express Jet Airlines. This comes as a result of a successful four year consignment program supporting Expressjet Airlines with materials management, warehousing and AOG support.

"This acquisition is a great opportunity to cement our position as one of the industry's foremost regional aircraft experts," said Melissa Coleman-Grina, Aventure's Senior Director of Business Development. "This will further expand our current capabilities in supporting Bombardier and Embraer airlines across the world."

Aventure hosted a celebratory luncheon on January 26 at their Atlanta headquarters, with a menu featuring Chinese cuisine. The office was colorfully decorated with red and gold, which are traditional colors representing good luck in several Asian countries. The team learned about the different ways the Lunar New Year is celebrated in various Asian countries.

"Aventure is a multi-cultural company that is fortunate to do business with all types of people from all over the world," said Wei Sun, Aventure Aviation's Account Executive for China. "We celebrate the Lunar New Year to share happiness with our friends in the Far East."
