Expertise and proximity

In opting for AFI KLM E&M solutions, Bonza is choosing the technical and operational expertise of a leading airline/MRO provider with extensive experience and capabilities on the 737 platform. In addition, AFI KLM E&M already supports a number of customers in the Asia Pacific & Oceania regions, with a local infrastructure – notably in Kuala Lumpur – enabling it to efficiently serve airlines in the region – not to mention its customer support teams already present on Australian soil. With solutions focusing on the availability of parts and equipment, Bonza is assured of reliable support, adapted to its operational challenges, to support the continuity of its operations.

“For a growing airline like ours that currently has a smaller fleet, we need to ensure that all our aircraft are operational so that we can deliver the best performance and experience for our customers. AFI KLM E&M's equipment solutions, including the pool access program, are a response to this requirement, and we are confident that their know-how and global experience of the 737 product will be invaluable in delivering smooth operations for our fleet.”

Tim Jordan

CEO of Bonza

“We are honored by the trust placed in us by Bonza. By signing this agreement, AFI KLM E&M is extending its footprint in the 737 market in Oceania, and also enhancing the relevance and attractiveness of its solutions on all generations of the 737, including the MAX. We look forward to supporting the development of Bonza's operations, a young and dynamic airline, through a long-term cooperation, starting with component support for their fleet.”
