Boeing 747 - Maintenance Solutions

Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) - Boeing 747 Components

 

We have 747 capabilities for the -200, -300 and -400 versions and our maintenance portfolio covers all components on these aircraft. AFI KLM E&M has an extensive experience of this aircraft type, as our parents companies operate it since its first launch, and as we have today a large number of (cargo) airline customers still operating it.

 

 

 

 The AIR FRANCE KLM Group has a reputable track record on the 747 that started with KLM by being the Main Contractor for this type in the KSSU Maintenance consortium that was initiated in the 70's. Since then a wealth of experience has been built up by supporting many heavy maintenance visits including all engine and components support.
