ASAM, the Airport Assistance Company of Mali, has announced its certification as an EASA Approved Maintenance Organisation with the ability to offer line maintenance services in West Africa for Airbus A320 Family and Boeing 737 (300/400/500/600/700/800) aircraft at the Modibo Keita-Sénou international airport in Bamako, Mali. This is due to a partnership with French company AMC Aviation, which is already an EASA AMO and has received approval for the Bamako station. This allows ASAM, under the ASAM Technics label, to perform maintenance and issue a Certificate of Release to Service (CRS) for an aircraft registered in any member country of the European Union or registered with EASA. This makes ASAM one of the first non-airline AMOs in West Africa. The first maintenance was completed by ASAM Technics technicians on an A320 of Aigle Azur.

FL Technics completed a major upgrade project for five Airbus A321s in 2017 for a leasing company. The latest modification included removal of the Additional Center Tanks in the aft cargo hold and the installation of a ventilation and heating system to allow for safe animal transportation and installation of a semi-automatic cargo loading system in both cargo compartments. The cabin was reconfigured by modifying monuments and adapting the seat layout. Another significant part of this project was the installation of a wireless ground link for the quick access recorder, allowing data to be sent automatically upon aircraft arrival.
