Jeju Air Extends Boeing 737 Engine Support Contract With AFI KLM E&M

Fast-growing South Korean budget airline JeJu Air is expanding its fleet of Boeing 737-800s. As a result it has formally agreed to extend their current engine maintenance contract with a further 18 shop visits. The long-term agreement covers full support – maintenance and repairs – of the CFM56-7B power plants equipping Jeju’s 737-800 fleet which will grow to 40 aircraft.

A public ceremony was organized during February’s Singapore Airshow to finalize the contract. Team Manager Purchasing Jeju Air, Mr. Kim, JW Louis said he was “very satisfied with the performance delivered by AFI KLM E&M. We naturally extended our engine support contract. We now wish to take these partnership relations even further.”

AFI KLM E&M Vice President Sales Asia Pacific, Dominik Wiener-Silva, added: “Jeju Air is a young, extremely dynamic airline. We are delighted to support it in this period of strong growth by providing support for the engines powering its growing fleet.”
