Air Premia, the new South Korean airline, has signed a contract with Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) to provide component support for its Boeing 787 fleet.
The long-term component contract between Air Premia and AFI KLM E&M covers, component repair, spares pool access and logistics for the majority of the part numbers installed on the 10 new aircraft fleet. Air Premia is the 20th customer to join the AFI KLM E&M 787 operators community and will profit from the MRO company’s global network and predictive maintenance tool, Prognos.
“We highly expect AFI KLM E&M’s close support based on its expertise in the operational issues faced by airlines. Being backed up by an airline-MRO which also operates the 787 fleet, we strongly believe, they would offer the best guarantee of a smooth operation and sharing of the technical knowledge as well” said T.J. Choi, Director E&M of Air Premia.
“Our group designs adaptive solutions for this high-tech aircraft, based on targeted innovations and in a continuous improvement spirit. Our main goal is to ensure that our maintenance services remain at the forefront of efficiency and reliability” said Dominik Wiener-Silva, VP Sales Asia-Pacific AFI KLM E&M.
“Wherever new-generation aircraft go, new-generation services must follow: thanks to our Prognos system, we’re able to draw upon the vast wealth of data provided by these highly communicative aircraft in order to make predictive maintenance a reality,” added Ton Dortmans, EVP KLM Engineering & Maintenance.
