AFI KLM E&M will provide component support for Delta Air Lines’ Airbus A350 fleet.
Under the terms of the agreement, which will run for an undisclosed period, both parties have entered a cooperation for AFI KLM E&M to draw on the component expertise of Delta through its maintenance division Delta TechOps.
At facilities in the U.S. and Europe, AFI KLM E&M will carry out component repairs and grant Delta access to its A350 spares pool.
“With this new A350 contract, AFI KLM E&M is showing it is a major player in this emerging market, with an extensive, expert, and competitive service offer,” said Anne Brachet, executive vice president Air France KLM Engineering & Maintenance.
The partnership could also lead to more mutual opportunities, according to Brachet.
“This opportunity also opens the door to further MRO collaborations and we look forward to expanding our maintenance relationship,” she added.
