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.
Jordan flag-carrier Royal Jordanian has renewed its contract with AFI KLM E&M for A340 component and engine support for a further three years.
The contract includes repairs and access to the spares pool as part of a per-flight-hour contract.
AFI KLM E&M recently signed a component support contract covering UK carrier Monarch Airlines' fleet of A330s.
Within the frame of this multi-years agreement, AFI is expecting to perform up to twenty five shop visits.
