AFI KLM E&M Obtains CAAC Approval for LEAP Maintenance

: Nov 20, 2019 - : 5:58 pm

Air France-KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) has received the approval of the Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC)for maintenance operations on LEAP engines (-1A / -1B).  The MRO made the announcement at the Dubai Air Show.

Issued by the Chinese authority at the end of October, the  authorization enables the company to carry out all types of operations (both on-wing and on-site) for LEAP-1A/-1B engines, parts and control units, for all customers in China – including both airlines and MROs.

AFI KLM E&M  had obtained the same approval from the EASA and FAA in 2018. The CAAC approval comes at a time when AFI KLM E&M has already acquired solid experience with these types of engines – experience which can now be shared with its customers throughout China’s expanding market.

“AFI KLM E&M has many customers and partners in China. With CAAC approval for LEAP engine maintenance, we’ll be able to broaden the range of products and services we can offer them,” said Anne Brachet, Executive Vice President AFI KLM E&M. “Our Group has already deployed its LEAP capabilities under EASA and FAA approval in order to support the engine’s initial operations around the world, and we’re excited to put this experience to work for the key players in the Chinese market.”
