Aeromexico and Air France Industries KLM E&M (AFI KLM E&M) have formalised the extension of two maintenance agreements.
One is for the component support of the Boeing 737 NG and Boeing 737 MAX aircraft and the other for APU support of Aeromexico’s Boeing 787 aircraft.
The component support agreement, initially signed in 2018, and now renewed, includes repair services, access to AFI KLM E&M’s 737 main parts pool and the provision of a main base kit at Aeromexico’s facilities.
The solutions will be delivered as part of the CSP 737 maintenance programme jointly operated by AFI KLM E&M and Boeing.
Aeromexico’s SVP supply chain Mikel Piña Bilbao said: “Our company’s satisfaction with the services delivered so far in terms of performance and reliability, AFI KLM E&M’s footprint and proximity to the American continent via Barfield, and its expertise in the 737 product, reinforced through the CSP programme, all explain why we continue to place our trust in the company. We look forward to continuing this collaboration and further optimising it to enhance the operational performance of our 737 fleet.”
The renewal of the 787 APU support agreement (APS5000 product) covers repair services and availability solutions, including the provision of spare APUs, as well as a dedicated operational condition monitoring system via the predictive maintenance program ‘PROGNOS for APU’.
Support will be led and implemented by AFI KLM E&M’s APU maintenance subsidiary Epcor.
Aeromexico’s head of group in propulsion Alejandro Cardona Seemann said: “AFI KLM E&M’s ability to operate solutions that integrate an airline’s vision is a key element in our renewal decision. Through its expertise and know-how, AFI KLM E&M knows how to advise us on the best choices to make to maximise the APU’s under-wing life, optimise our removal plans and reduce our costs.”
AFI KLM E&M’s SVP commercial Pierre Teboul commented: “Aeromexico has been a privileged and historic partner for AFI KLM E&M for several years. We are delighted with the trust the airline has placed in us and remain fully committed to supporting their current and future challenges with high-performance maintenance programmes tailored to the reality of their operations.”
