MRO: Air France Industries gets on board the
Air Tahiti Nui
It is the continuation of a historic relationship. Air Tahiti Nui has signed a series of agreements with AFI KLM E&M, the maintenance division of Air France-KLM, to support its four new Boeing 787-9s (two aircraft have already been delivered).

The "Tahitian Dreamliners" will now benefit from a customised package of services covering equipment, engines and cell maintenance.

These services include repairs and access to a pool for equipment support, shop visits and engineering and logistical support services for Air Tahiti Nui's nine GEnx-1B engines.

Remember that AFI KLM E&M had already been supporting Air Tahiti Nui's A340-300 fleet for several years. Only the maintenance of the CFM56-5C engines had been entrusted to LHT in 2012, a contract which is now coming to an end.

The Tahitian Dreamliners' APUs are also covered with repairs and servicing of the APS5000s (Pratt & Whitney) by EPCOR. AFI KLM E&M's subsidiary dedicated to auxiliary power units will also be providing the Tahitian airline with a spare APU if necessary.

Finally, AFI KLM E&M will also be providing line maintenance services at three Air Tahiti Nui destinations, at Roissy CDG, Los Angeles and Tokyo Narita.
