AFI KLM E&M To Service Virgin Dreamliners

Virgin Atlantic has selected AFI KLM E&M to provide component maintenance services on the company’s new fleet of 15 787-9s which begin to enter into service this year. AFI KLM already provides component support for Virgin Atlantic’s 747-400, A330 and A340 fleets. The new contract covers component and APU maintenance, along with pool access and the supply of a “main base kit” holding in London for the airline’s 787s. AFI KLM E&M claims the order makes it the only MRO firm backed by an airline that has opted to include the 787-9 in its own fleet.
