Jeju Air has formally agreed to extend its current engine maintenance contract with AFI KLM E&M with another 18 shop visits.
The long-term agreement will see AFI KLM E&M provide full support, maintenance and repairs of the CFM56-7B engines which power Jeju Air's Boeing 737-800 fleet, the number of which will soon be expanding to 40 aircraft.
Jeju Air’s team manager of purchasing, Kim JW Louis, said he was very satisfied with the performance delivered by AFI KLM E&M. “We naturally extended our engine support contract. We now wish to take these partnership relations even further."
Dominik Wiener-Silva, VP sales Asia Pacific, AFI KLM E&M, added, “Jeju Air is a young, extremely dynamic airline. We are delighted to support it in this period of strong growth by providing support for the engines powering its growing fleet.”
