Royal Jordanian Renews A340, A321 Component and Engine Support Contracts with Air France Industries

Paris, September, 27 2007 – Royal Jordanian renewed its contract with Air France Industries (AFI) for component and engine support for its four A340s for a period of three years. Component and engine support for two A321s was simultaneously renewed for 12 months.

Component support includes per flight-hour repairs and access to the spares pool, together with the creation of a main base kit (MBK).

The engine support contracts are on a time-and-materials basis, plus per-flight-hour access to the spares pool for engines and engine accessories.

The renewals follow on from a full component repair contract signed in 2006 comprising repairs, spares access and an MBK for six new aircraft: two A321s and four A320s.

AFI currently provides MRO support for twelve of Royal Jordanian's aircraft fleet, while KLM Engineering & Maintenance provides engine support services for the airline's A310s.

The contracts were awarded in recognition of AFI's excellent across-the-board service provision notably in logistics, engineering and on-site assistance plus high-level customer satisfaction.

Air France Industries and KLM Engineering & Maintenance, which joined forces following the Air France KLM merger, are world-leading multi-product MRO (Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul) providers with a joint workforce of 15,000, offering comprehensive repair capability, integration expertise, component pool operational support and a powerful logistics network. Together they support more than 900 aircraft and serve upwards of 150 major international airlines.
