AFI KLM E&M to Provide A339neo Support to Virgin Atlantic

Our Bureau - : Oct 22, 2022 - : 1:23 am

Virgin Atlantic, a longstanding customer, has reiterated its confidence in AFI KLM E&M, enlisting its component support services for a new fleet of A330neo aircraft.

The MRO company already provides services to the carrier for a variety of aircraft, from Boeing 747 to latest-generation aircraft such as the 787 and A350.

Virgin’s fleet will eventually comprise up to 16 A339neos. AFI KLM E&M is preparing to deploy its solutions to the first of the airline’s A339neos, which has been named “Billie Holiday”, as well as those set to follow. The services provided will include flight-hour repairs, access to a spare parts pool, and the provision of a Main Base Kit for Virgin Atlantic’s facilities in London.

“The long history between our two groups illustrates AFI KLM E&M’s ability to build lasting partnerships with airlines, and to continue to deliver high-quality services across multiple products over the long term,” said Pierre Teboul, SVP Commercial at AFI KLM E&M. “We’re greatly honored at the latest display of confidence Virgin Atlantic has shown in us for A339neo component support, and are fully mobilized to support both the launch phase and the increasingly important role this new aircraft will play within their fleet.”

“For over 20 years, AFI KLM E&M has shown itself to be a benchmark partner for our airline in the field of aircraft component services, providing highly effective support on our current fleets, as well as on our A339neos from October 2022,” said Neil Ambidge, VP Engineering & Maintenance of Virgin Atlantic. “We are already familiar with AFI KLM E&M’s ability to design and deliver high-level solutions to boost performance and competitiveness, as well as their capacity to take into account the requirements and constraints of an airline operation, given their status as an Airline-MRO.”
