AFI KLM E&M expands Boeing 787 MRO business

Qantas and Jetstar have awarded a Boeing 787 fleet component support contract to AFI KLM E&M, which now supports 193 Boeing 787s worldwide.

Qantas Airways — in association with the group’s low cost carrier, Jetstar — has entered into a long term Component Pooling Services Agreement with AFI KLM E&M to support the two carriers' fleet of Boeing 787s. This brings the total number of 787 customer airlines contracted by AFI KLM E&M to fifteen and further strengthens the company’s position in the Asia-Pacific region.

The contract covers pool access and repairs and applies to a total fleet of eight 787-9s to be operated by Qantas, and the eleven 787-8s in service with Jetstar.

To guarantee maximum availability for the supported fleets, Qantas Airways and Jetstar will benefit from direct access to the AFI KLM E&M spares pool stationed at Kuala Lumpur and will be able to rely on its worldwide network of inventories and component repair shops, including AFI KLM E&M main facilities in Paris and Amsterdam.

Qantas is a long-standing AFI KLM E&M client, with component support Agreements in place for its fleet of Airbus A330s and, via AFI KLM E&M's Spairliners joint venture for its fleet of A380s.

Jetstar’s Vietnam-based branch Jetstar Pacific has recently contracted AFI KLM E&M for component support of its growing fleet of Airbus A320s.
