AFI KLM E&M and Alpha Star Aviation Services of Saudi Arabia have signed an amendment to a component support contract signed in 2013 covering the company’s VIP Airbus fleet. An additional A320 was added this year, supplementing an A318, an A319, two A320s and an A340.


Boeing has announced Air Canada as the launch customer for new landing gear exchange programmes for 777-300ER and 777-200LR airframes. Under the agreement, Air Canada will receive fully overhauled and certified landing gear shipsets for its fleet of 17 777-300ERs and six 777-200LRs during scheduled maintenance cycles. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.


HAECO ITM and China Airlines (CAL) have entered into an agreement for a long-term rotables management programme on the airline’s Boeing 777-300ER fleet, covering a range of line-replaceable units and simulator parts. CAL took delivery of its first 777-300ER in late September and will have added another nine aircraft to its fleet by mid-2016. Under the agreement, HAECO ITM will support CAL with comprehensive component solutions, including repair management, provision of onsite consignment stock in Taipei, as well as access to HAECO ITM’s extensive inventory pool in Hong Kong.


Iberia Maintenance will support the repair of avionics and other OEM aircraft components for the cockpits of full-flight simulators belonging to CAE that are located in Europe. The three-year contract covers the inspection and repair of avionics components, such as the multipurpose control display unit and flight management guidance computers. It also allows the use of spare parts held by Iberia.


Lufthansa Technik and Aeroflot Russian Airlines have concluded a long-term agreement for the provision of maintenance and repair services (MRS) of aircraft components to the Russian aviation company on improved conditions. Lufthansa Technik became the winner of the tender for selecting a MRS supplier for aircraft components to all companies of the Aeroflot Group.


The new 10-year agreement will be valid from January 2015 and supersedes the contract that currently exists between the two companies. Due to effective management of material assets, the unique quality and constant innovation of repair work, as well as its individual approach to the service of customers based on the volume of work, Lufthansa Technik was able to offer the Russian partner the most beneficial conditions of cooperation. Aeroflot will save significant financial investment over the course of the duration of the agreement due to cost reduction. The new agreement also includes clauses on the liability of the supplier for the quality and promptness of work.


Lufthansa Technik and its subsidiary Hawker Pacific Aerospace have signed a General Terms Agreement with SPP Canada Aircraft (SPPCA) to provide future after sales support where SPPCA is the landing gear OEM. SPPCA are the OEM on the Mitsubishi Regional Jet and have also just been awarded the Dornier Seastar CD 2 landing gear.


UTC Aerospace Systems (UTAS) has signed an agreement with AFI KLM E&M to provide rotable provisioning (on both lease and exchange), as well as MRO services on Boeing 787 nacelle components designed and manufactured by UTAS Aerostructures business unit. The agreement paves the way for AFI KLM E&M to implement MRO services for these products based on optimised processes, complex repairs and specific tooling. As a result, AFI KLM E&M is developing capabilities to handle shop or on-wing repairs to the component parts of the engine nacelles, these are comprised of the thrust reversers, air intakes, fan cowls, exhausts and centre bodies of both Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 and General Electric GEnx engines. The agreement also includes access to a dedicated stock of spares that allows AFI KLM E&M to offer leasing or routine replacement services to its clients.


Frank Terner, Executive Vice President AFI KLM E&M, says: “The decision to develop this market space aligns with our Group’s industrial strategy and with the opening of the Helios new aerostructures facility at Paris-CDG airport.”
