EgyptAir M&E and Air Zimbabwe sign support contracts with AFI KLM E&M
EgyptAir Group, represented by EgyptAir Maintenance and Engineering is taking advantage of the renewal of its existing component support contract to extend its scope, confirming its trust in AFI KLM E&M services. Initially signed in 2004 to cover component support for EgyptAir’s Airbus, the renewed contract now includes the carrier’s A320s, A330s and Boeing 777 fleets.
After resuming flight operations and acquiring two Airbus A320s, Air Zimbabwe has signed a contract with AFI KLM E&M covering component support for these two aircraft. The contract includes pool access and per-flight-hour repairs, together with the provision of a Main Base Kit, initially positioned at Johannesburg, and subsequently at Harare airport. In parallel with this contract, Air Zimbabwe has decided to entrust the maintenance and repair of the CFM56-5A and -5B engines powering the two A320s.
