Posted 21 November 2016 · Add Comment

Services oriented towards maximizing availability for the three Air Mauritius ATR 72-500s.

AFI KLM E&M, which already supplies aircraft maintenance services for the entire Air Mauritius Airbus fleet, has signed a contract with the Mauritius carrier to organise power by the hour component support for its ATR 72-500s. The agreement covers the three aircraft already operated by Air Mauritius and may be extended if new aircraft are brought into the fleet.

Air Mauritius has relied on AFI KLM E&M MRO services for over 15 years and is well acquainted with the quality of its services, as well as with the expertise and local presence of its teams. Under the terms of the new contract, AFI KLM E&M has taken the operational needs of its long-standing client into account to come up with an offer tailored to maximum aircraft availability. The support services accordingly include, in addition to component repairs, dedicated access to the AFI KLM E&M spares pool and the provision of a Main Base Kit.
 
Jean-Michel Picard, AFI KLM E&M VP Sales Africa & Middle East, said: “It was important for AFI KLM E&M to continue our partnership with Air Mauritius, one of our long-standing partners and clients. By designing tailored maintenance and availability solutions for them we have been able to retain their trust and we are delighted to have done so, now that AFI KLM E&M supplies MRO services for the entire Air Mauritius fleet.”
