Volotea has selected Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) to provide aircraft maintenance services on its A320 aircraft.

The agreement comes into force in January 2023 and runs for five and a half years. The work will mainly be carried out during the winter seasons.

AFI KLM E&M will perform 120 C-checks in the hangars of Aerotechnics Industries (ATI). C-checks are typically performed every two years, and consist of the inspection, overhaul, maintenance and replacement of aircraft parts, as well as preventive maintenance.

“This long-term agreement provides us with first-class maintenance services for our A320 fleet,” said Volotea founder and CEO Carlos Muñoz. “Working with a leading and reputable MRO like AFI KLM E&M will provide us with the highest level of inspection services. Furthermore, this agreement represents an essential quality guarantee for Volotea, an airline whose top priority is safety.”

Air France-KLM Engineering & Maintenance’s EVP Anne Brachet commented: “We are very pleased to welcome Volotea among our customers and proud of the additional recognition this brings to the quality of our aircraft maintenance services. With the proximity and flexibility provided by our global MRO network, our dual airline-MRO expertise and our in-depth A320 product experience, we will ensure that Volotea’s fleet is maintained at the highest possible level of operational excellence.”
