In late 2020, Air Premia joined the community of AFI KLM E&M customers operating Boeing 787 aircraft, establishing a long-term partnership via a component support service package for its fleet of Boeing 787-9s (eventually set to total ten aircraft). Owing to industry delays in the delivery of these new aircraft, the South Korean airline decided to lease two 787-9s from Aergo Capital, soon to be integrated into its fleet. Therefore, AFI KLM E&M and Air Premia have announced the extension of their partnership, adjoining these two aircraft to the component support agreement concluded between the two groups.
The scope of services provided by AFI KLM E&M remains unchanged and covers repairs, logistical support, provision of spare parts and access to the Prognos® predictive maintenance tool. AFI KLM E&M was able to rapidly adjust its commercial offer in order to take into account these two mature, “remarketed” aircraft.
