AFI KLM E&M’s Asia Focus Increasingly Paying Off

Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) has won what almost certainly is its biggest component-support deal in Asia to date.

One week after opening a new Materials and Logistics Center in Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur to serve as a local spares pool to fast-track the supply of replacement parts to its client airlines in Asia, Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) has won what almost certainly is its biggest component-support deal in Asia to date.

Announced on 8 December, AirAsia’s decision to award AFI KLM E&M the component-support contract for its entire eventual fleet of 304 Airbus A320neos opens the door for the European-based MRO and spares logistics company potentially to win further large contracts from the AirAsia Group in the future.

In addition to the 304 A320neos AirAsia intends to operate, the carrier and its siblings throughout Asia also operate an existing fleet of more than 200 aircraft, all of them A320-family and A330-family jets.
