Virgin Atlantic selects AFI KLM E&M for its A350-1000 component support

AFI KLM E&M and Virgin Atlantic have signed a support services agreement for the airline’s new fleet of 12 A350-1000 aircraft, the first unit of which will be delivered this summer.

The flight-hour support contract covers repairs, access to a pool of spare parts and the provision of a Main Base Kit in London.

Virgin Atlantic already has a contract with AFI KLM E&M for component support services for its current fleet of Boeing 787, 747 and Airbus A330/A340 aircraft.

Phil Wardlaw, vice president engineer & maintenance at Virgin Atlantic, stated: “We’re delighted to be strengthening our relationship with AFI KLM E&M, whose expertise and flexible services have been an asset to us for the past 20 years.

“Moreover, we know that AFI KLM E&M already has proven experience in providing support services for this new product – an added plus that helped seal our decision.”
