AFI KLM E&M to paint Etihad aircraft
AFI KLM E&M is to repaint five Boeing 777-200 aircraft for Etihad Airways. Initially drafted for the existing 777-300 fleet, the contract was amended after the airline decided to take delivery of five new 777-200 aircraft. In addition to the painting process (stripping, sanding, painting and coating of the fuselage, vertical fin, stabilizer, engines and wings) the contract involves creating the technical drawings for 777-200 livery.
