Paris, Amstelveen, 15 November 2011 – Royal Jordanian has selected AFI KLM E&M to provide component support for its three Airbus A330 passenger jets. The contract includes repairs and access to the spares pool as part of a per-flight-hour contract. AFI KLM E&M has also deployed a Main Base Kit (MBK) for its customer at Amman airport in Jordan.
Building on trust
AFI KLM E&M and Royal Jordanian have had a commercial relationship since 2002 under a similar contract for the Jordan airline’s A340s. On the strength of the past eight years’ cooperation, the carrier has been able to recognize the excellent service quality delivered by the MRO.
Proximity and logistics wins
Main Base Kits offer faster access to spare parts. To deploy the A330 MBK, AFI KLM E&M has built on the system already set up under the A340 support contract to ensure the customer benefits from spare parts supply synergies.
