Volotea, the airline connecting mid-sized European cities, will send its A320 aircraft to Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance for a comprehensive airframe service, mainly to be carried out during the winter seasons. This first agreement will be in force for more than five years, starting January 2023. The contract includes two full nose-to-tail maintenance lines for the winter maintenance season. The visits will be performed by Aerotechnics Industries, a specialised joint venture operating within AFI KLM E&M’s global MRO network.
AFI KLM E&M has been selected to perform 120 C-Checks after a comprehensive bidding process that demonstrated the relevance and high quality of its airframe maintenance services. Depending on operational conditions, C-checks, typically performed every two years, consist of the inspection, overhaul, maintenance and replacement of aircraft parts, but also include preventive maintenance.
