Air France Industries and KLM EandM: 150 customer airlines
Saturday 18, December 2010
Air France Industrie KLM Engineering and Maintenance (AFI KLM EandM) and Zodiac Aerospace have just begun upgrading the IFE (In-Flight Entertainment) systems on 4 of Royal Jordanian's Airbus A340s. These upgrades involve replacing 229 seats in Economy class and 24 in Business class.
AFI KLM E&M provide maintenance support for more than 1,230 aircraft belonging to 150 international airlines. With a workforce of over 14,000, AFI KLM E&M offers extended technical support capabilities for airline operators, ranging from aircraft engineering and repair work to engine maintenance, including management, repair and supplies of aeronautical parts and components backed by a powerful logistics network.
Air France Industries and KLM Engineering & Maintenance joined forces following the merger of Air France and KLM and currently rank global second among multi-product providers.
Aeronautical maintenance is the Air France-KLM Group's third core business. In addition to the services provided to the Group's fleets, a third of these activities are carried out for external customers, generating a turnover slightly above 4% of the Group's revenue.
The AFI KLM E&M has a two-fold objective: guarantee competitive maintenance support for Air France and KLM fleets, and be a leading MRO (Maintenance Repair & Overhaul) player contributing to the Group's results.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
