Their maintenance services have always provided the strongest guarantees of quality and reliability, and have become a major contributor to our operational performance and to the service we offer our customers. As a result, we are certain that we will benefit from the same exacting standards and excellence for our ATR 72-600s.”

The extension of our trust-based partnership with IndiGo is an additional mark of the relevance and quality of the MRO solutions designed by AFI KLM E&M, and our Group is already geared up to support the integration of the ATR 72-600s in IndiGo’s fleet with optimal component support in place, thanks, in particular, to our new Singapore facility.”
