Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) has signed a long-term power by the hour (PBH) contract with SunExpress Deutschland covering the CF6-80E1 engines powering the airline’s A330 fleet.

The engine PBH agreement is the first between the parties and in addition to engine maintenance, also covers engine availability and on-wing support services.

SunExpress Deutschland, a subsidiary of Turkey-based airline group SunExpress, said it opted to work with AFI KLM E&M due to the MRO’s technical and operational expertise on the CF6-80E1 engine.

Michael Zeuner, post holder maintenance of SunExpress Deutschland, said: “AFI KLM E&M capabilities mean that it can guarantee the availability of our fleet by providing spare engines, which is also a source of peace of mind for us.”
