AFI KLM E&M has signed an agreement for its specialist subsidiary EPCOR to provide APU coverage on Aerolineas Argentinas’ entire aircraft fleet.
Netherlands-based EPCOR, which says it repairs around 3500 components annually, holds capabilities for every type of APU in the Aerolieas Argentinas fleet.
The AFI KLM E&M unit has previously worked with the state-owned airline on a number of agreements encompassing engine work, parts repair and APU overhauls.
Previous experience, according to Hernan Flombaum, Aerolineas Argentinas components and engines provisioning manager, was a factor in extending the contract.
“It was natural for us to maintain our trust with this reliable partner, especially as EPCOR has a global reputation for its expertise and the effectiveness of its APU support solutions,” he added.
