Paris, Amstelveen, 21 November 2017 - Aeromexico has decided to entrust maintenance of the APS5000 APUs equipping its fleet of Boeing 787s to AFI KLM E&M via EPCOR, the MRO's subsidiary specializing in APU support solutions. The services include APU repairs plus access to a dedicated spares pool and the sale of a spare APU at preferential conditions.
Aeromexico a long-standing AFI KLM E&M client
AFI KLM E&M has worked with Aeromexico for many years, delivering services in every area of aircraft maintenance. With this latest contract, the two partners are further strengthening their relationship, with Aeromexico entrusting the maintenance of its new 787 APUs to EPCOR. The AFI KLM E&M subsidiary was able to earn the trust of the Mexican carrier through an existing partnership to maintain the APUs on Aeromexico' s 777s. In addition, EPCOR was the sole provider of MRO services able to submit an offer that included availability solutions such as the sale of a spare APU to ensure Aeromexico's operational continuity.
Max Alvarez, Aeromexico Senior Vice President Fleet and Business Development, said: "Guaranteeing aircraft availability is fundamental for Aeromexico as it is for any other airline. In this regard, AFI KLM E&M and EPCOR have satisfied our expectations by coming up with a tailor-made offer that matches our operational requirements."
EPCOR Managing Director Dennis Wetjens said: "In addition to maintaining the APUs of Aeromexico's fleet of 777s, the airline is now extending the scope of its partnership with EPCOR, adding in the maintenance of the APUs equipping its 787s. We are delighted with this new agreement, which places EPCOR among the global market leaders for APU-dedicated MRO services."
