AirAsia X Extends Partnership with AFI KLM E&M
AirAsia X extended its contract with AFI KLM E&M covering the component support for its fleet of Airbus A330s and A340s. The initial contract inked in 2009 only covered one leased aircraft, but has been extended twice in order to support the expansion of the Malaysian carrier. This includes the 25 new A330s ordered from Airbus and the 2 A340s. This latest extended agreement would include an additional 7 A330s (1 new aircraft, 6 leased), covering component repairs, pool access and logistics services for a total fleet of 35 A330s and A340s.
