Malaysia Airlines has extended its component support contract with AFI KLM E&M covering its fleet of Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
The new agreement, part of the Component Services Program the airline MRO jointly operates with Boeing, covers multiple part numbers across a total of 54 737s jets.
It adds to the original agreement signed in 2010 encompassing 35 of the narrowbodies.
An undisclosed number of years have also been added to the contract.
Terms include component repair services and Malaysia Airlines having access to the local and main AFI KLM E&M spares pools located respectively in Kuala Lumpur and Amsterdam.
Paul Kear, technical director at Malaysia Airlines, said: “The support implemented by AFI KLM E&M for our fleet of 737-800s stands out both for its service quality and its responsiveness. The group has deployed tailored solutions, guaranteeing our operational continuity, so it was a logical decision to extend our cooperation.”
