Malaysia Airlines is extending its long-standing relationship with Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) by signing a component support contract for its Boeing 737 fleet. Under this long-term contract, AFI KLM E&M provides tailored component solutions including MBK, pool, repair and logistics. The component support solutions provided to Malaysia Airlines are carried out through the Component Services Programme (CSP) which is jointly operated by AFI KLM E&M and Boeing. The services include component repair and access to AFI KLM E&M’s local and main spare parts pools, located in Kuala Lumpur and Amsterdam respectively.
The high quality of the CSP, which combines expertise of an Airline-MRO and the aircraft manufacturer, as well as the component availability solutions deployed in proximity to Malaysia Airlines’ facilities, have so far given full satisfaction to the airline.
“The support implemented by AFI KLM E&M for our fleet of 737-800s stands out both for its service quality and responsiveness to fulfilling our needs for specific component services and support to ensure operational continuity, so it was a logical decision to extend our cooperation,” said Malaysia Airlines Group Chief Operations Officer Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi.
KLM E&M Executive Vice President Ton Dortmans said, “We are delighted to see that Malaysia Airlines has maintained and even extended its trust in AFI KLM E&M services. This testifies to the quality of our services and emphasises our ability to provide solutions backed by a global logistics network built around local facilities on our clients’ doorsteps.”
