26/02/2018 - XL Airways Extends Cooperation With AFI KLM E&M

The French airline renews trust in AFI KLM E&M for component support and A checks on its fleet of A330s.

Paris, Amstelveen, 26 February 2018 - AFI KLM E&M and XL Airways have extended their existing contract covering component support (repairs and pool access) and A checks for the French airline's four Airbus A330s from its Paris-Charles de Gaulle base at Roissy. The scope of the contract could eventually be broadened to include support for other aircraft, depending on the growth of the XL Airways fleet.

Trust and satisfaction
The two groups have worked together for around ten years, giving complete satisfaction to XL Airways. Based at Paris-CDG, close to AFI KLM E&M's facilities and maintenance shops, XL Airways has always benefitted from ultra-responsive support right on its doorstep, guaranteeing operational continuity.

Fabrice Defrance, Senior Vice President Commercial AFI KLM E&M, said: "We are honoured by the trust placed in us by XL Airways, one of our longest-standing customers, with which we have forged a true partnership bond over the years."

Jean-Pierre Fachinetti, Vice President Maintenance & Engineering XL Airways France, added: "The support delivered by AFI KLM E&M for years provides us with the strongest guarantees of reliability and performance for our airline. The quality of the services supplied, the expertise of the technical teams, and their proximity to our facilities are the reasons prompting us to extend our cooperation with AFI KLM E&M, with the assurance that we will continue to enjoy optimal support."
