Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M ) and Malaysia Airlines have signed an extension to their existing contract for the carrier’s Boeing 737 fleet.
Under the long-term contract, AFI KLM E&M provides tailored component solutions including MBK, pool, repair and logistics. The component support solutions provided to Malaysia Airlines are carried out through the Component Services Program (CSP) that is jointly operated by AFI KLM E&M and Boeing. The services include component repair and access to AFI KLM E&M’s local and main spare parts pools, located in Kuala Lumpur and Amsterdam respectively.
“The support implemented by AFI KLM E&M for our fleet of 737-800s stands out both for its service quality and responsiveness to fulfilling our needs for specific component services and support to ensure operational continuity, so it was a logical decision to extend our cooperation,” said Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi, Malaysia Airlines Group Chief Operations Officer.
“We are delighted to see that Malaysia Airlines has maintained and even extended its trust in AFI KLM E&M services,” said KLM E&M EVP, Ton Dortmans. “This testifies to the quality of our services and emphasizes our ability to provide solutions backed by a global logistics network built around local facilities on our clients’ doorsteps.”
