AFI KLM E&M and Corsair today signed an extension of their A330 component support contract binding the two companies for several years of extension at the MRO Europe trade show in Amsterdam. The scope of the services provided is unchanged, ranging from component repairs to provision of a Main Base Kit and pool access.

A long-standing partnership

The two groups have cooperated for many years in the aircraft maintenance sphere, for both Corsair's Boeing 747s and A330s, and have built up a genuine partnership. The trust created is again reflected in the extension of the A330 component support contract, for which AFI KLM E&M was able to propose an economically competitive offer to the French airline.

Jean-Luc Moine, Technical Director, Corsair, and Stefano Sciotti, Corsair Head of Procurement, said: "The services delivered by AFI KLM E&M have always given us complete satisfaction in technical and assistance terms. Consequently, it was natural for Corsair to extend the contract with the MRO group, which has been able to put together a range of services combining professionalism, quality and price performance right from the start of our cooperation."

Fabrice Defrance, Senior Vice President Commercial AFI KLM E&M, said: "We are proud that Corsair, a very long-standing AFI KLM E&M customer, has renewed its trust in us. Long-haul partnerships such as this are the best testimony to our know-how and to the quality our Group offers in terms not only of maintenance, naturally, but also of attentiveness and service support for our customers."
