AFI KLM E&M's adaptability at the time of a Cargo Air emergency repair swings component support contract.
Paris, Amstelveen, 14 March 2012 - AFI KLM E&M is proud to welcome Cargo Air as its new customer. AFI KLM E&M knows that a fleet operator must be able to count on a reliable and responsive MRO at all times, as recently experienced by Cargo Air. The cargo airline had to urgently replace a defective part on one of its Boeing 737 aircraft which was carrying express parcels for TNT. Contacted by Cargo Air, AFI KLM E&M filled the order in record time, adapting its procedures and mobilizing its staff. Satisfied with this performance, Cargo Air subsequently decided to entrust component support for its fleet to AFI KLM E&M on a regular basis.
An expanding fleet
Cargo Air works with market leaders such as TNT in the express air freight sector. The carrier operates two 737s, for which component support and pool access is now provided by AFI KLM E&M. Cargo Air has also recently signed a contract with DHL and has invested in a third 737 for which AFI KLM E&M will also be responsible.
Adaptiveness the key to success
The long-term, flight-hour contract was recently signed. Ton Dortmans, KLM E&M Executive Vice President, said he was delighted with this latest partnership: "We won this contract thanks to our adaptiveness. We were able to respond quickly and comprehensively to a complex request resulting in the trust of a new client. Our powerful commitment to adaptiveness is the key to our success."
