AFI KLM E&M has been granted Part 145 approval by EASA authorising it to carry out line maintenance for airlines operating the Airbus A350. The Group has already provided technical assistance services on a customer’s A350 at its Rome outstation, and has contracted with Vietnam Airlines to deliver line maintenance services at Paris-CDG.


Lufthansa Technik Maintenance International (LTMI) has extended its contract with Hungarian low-cost carrier Wizz Air for line maintenance services in Romania and Slovakia. The new agreement is to run for eight years from November 2015 and reflects updated conditions and scopes of work. LTMI currently supports Wizz Air with line maintenance services for 16 Airbus A320-200 aircraft in Romania and other countries. Under the new agreement, LTMI will perform line maintenance at six stations in Romania and Slovakia, with the possibility of enlarging the network with new stations. LTMI will look after the airline’s growing fleet, including the new A321neo aircraft. As part of the agreement, LTMI will continue to manage the line maintenance network and be responsible for the entire fleet stationed in this region. Its comprehensive services include a single point of contact for all line maintenance issues, preventive maintenance and performance monitoring of the fleet managed by LTMI.


LTMI is investing considerably in back-shops for sheet metal, heavy tooling and ground support equipment at Bucharest Otopeni Airport, Cluj International Airport, Timisoara International Airport, Targu Mures International Airport and Craiova International Airport in Romania, as well as Kosice International Airport in Slovakia. LTMI is also evaluating the setup of a line maintenance hangar in Romania to enable even greater expansion of the scope of work and independence from weather conditions, thus avoiding the costs of rotating aircraft to other stations of Wizz Air.
