Royal Jordanian Renews Contract with AFI KLM E&M for Component & Engine Support
Wednesday, 29 September 2010

Royal Jordanian renews contract with AFI KLM E&M for component and engine support for its A340s and signs contract for A330 component and CF6-80C engine overhauls for a further three years. The engines are cared for at AFI KLM E&M's Amsterdam engine shop.

The contract includes repairs and pool access as part of a flight hour contract for components overhaul of engines and access to leased spare engines.  The contract includes repairs and access to the spares pool, with the deployment of a Main Base Kit (MBK) for its customer at Amman airport in Jordan.

"We are pleased to have renewed this contract for which Air France Industries showed they were genuinely well-disposed as regards the services on offer and their overall professionalism," said Royal Jordanian CEO Mr Hussein H. Dabbas.

AFI KLM E&M and Royal Jordanian have enjoyed a close commercial relationship since 2002. On the strength of the past eight years' cooperation, the carrier has been able to gauge the excellent service quality delivered by the MRO and its personnel. "We are happy to continue providing support for such an important customer as Royal Jordanian to help it develop in its region," said Fabrice Defrance, AFI KLM E&M SVP Business Development & Commercial organisation.

MBKs offer rapid access to spares at a carrier's home airport. To deploy the A330 MBK, AFI KLM E&M has built on the system already set up under the A340 support contract to ensure the customer benefits from spare parts supply synergies.
