Transavia France to Fly A320neo with Support from AFI KLM E&M

Transavia France and AFI KLM E&M have signed a custom-designed Component Support program for its first A320neo aircraft that it will acquire within the next few weeks as part of a vast fleet renewal program. AFI KLM E&M also supports the French low-cost airline’s Boeing 737 Components.

The service package put together by AFI KLM E&M includes repair services, pool access and the provision of a Main Base Kit (MBK). The services will cover an extended range of components, going beyond Line Replaceable Units (LRUs) to include other critical items such as wheels and tires, oxygen systems and batteries. The support provided will cover Transavia France’s entire A320neo fleet.

The French airline will also benefit from simplified order processing and streamlined maintenance management, through the establishment of an interconnection between its operating systems and the AFI KLM E&M information system via the Aeroxchange platform.

“AFI KLM E&M is a benchmark partner for our airline in the field of aviation maintenance,” said Oliver Mazzucchelli, CEO at Transavia France. “Our relationship is based on a sense of mutual trust and understanding that helps facilitate our interactions, and this was once again the case when it came to expressing our maintenance needs for our A320neo fleet. AFI KLM E&M was able to take our expectations fully into account, designing a custom-built service package that’s oriented towards our performance, availability, and reliability goals.”

“We already provide support for over 400 A320neo-type aircraft for our customer airlines, and consequently have developed substantial expertise, dedicated processes, and human and technical resources for this product,” said Anne Brachet, EVP Air France-KLM Engineering & Maintenance. “These various assets will now be put to work for Transavia France, with a view to providing high-performance, proximity-based support that’s precisely customized to suit their operational needs.”
