Bolivian airline shows trust in AFI KLM E&M engine services for second time.

Paris, Amstelveen, 3 April 2012 - AFI KLM E&M has signed a contract with TAB Airlines General Manager Col. DAEN, Franz Tamayo de la Rocha, for the supply of a spare lease engine plus an engine shopvisit for its DC-10 freighter. When the contract binding TAB Airlines to the supplier of its aircraft engines expired, the Bolivian carrier decided to entrust the responsibility to AFI KLM E&M.


New opportunities
Two years ago, TAB Airlines had already purchased an engine from AFI KLM E&M: "We were very satisfied with the high quality and excellent performance of the engine. What's more, the very good reputation of AFI KLM E&M on the MRO market convinced us to entrust them our maintenance and we are delighted to be working with them again," said Luis Melean, Maintenance Director at TAB Airlines. AFI KLM E&M VP Sales Central & South America Miguel Chiang said: "This new contract is good news and again proves our unique capability to offer adaptive maintenance solutions tailored to customer needs. We are very pleased with this latest cooperation and welcome TAB Airlines as a regular customer and look forward to extend our relationship."
