Transavia has extended its long-term Boeing 737NG rotable components maintenance and pooling services agreement – dedicated to the carrier’s Amsterdam-based fleet – with Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance.
The agreement comes under the Component Services Program (CSP) jointly operated by AFI KLM E&M and Boeing as the optimum response to 737NG requirements. The contract covers component maintenance and flexible availability solutions, including the management of components (part numbers) under a flight hour rate. All Transavia fleets are supported by AFI KLM E&M under the Boeing 737 CSP programme.
Arnold Boot, director purchasing & logistics of Transavia, commented, “The decision to extend the contract was fairly simple considering AFI KLM E&M's adaptability to Transavia's requirements and good partnership. AFI KLM E&M proved over the past years to be a very reliable partner enabling us to meet our operational targets by delivering an excellent performance. Its flexibility in combination with lowering our maintenance cost for the coming years was the basis for our decision. We are looking forward to continue our good partnership relation with AFI KLM E&M in order to optimise the operational performance of our growing Next-Generation 737 fleet.”
