Malaysia Airlines has awarded Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) a long-term component support contract covering its 737 fleet.

    The contract extends a long-standing relationship between the companies, and covers tailored component solutions including MBK, pool, repair and logistics.

    Work will be carried out through the ‘Component Services Program’ (CSP), which is jointly operated by AFI KLM E&M and Boeing.

    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 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’s chief operations officer Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi.

    KLM E&M EVP Ton Dortmans commented: “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.”
