Enerjet chooses AFI KLM E&M for 737NG component support

    PARIS and AMSTELVEEN, The Netherlands, April 16 /CNW/ - Canadian charter
airline Enerjet signed an exclusive 5 year component support contract with Air
France Industries (AFI) and KLM Engineering & Maintenance (KLM E&M) covering
maintenance and pool access for their growing fleet of 737NGs.

    The support will be offered by the joint Component Services Program (CSP)
of Boeing and KLM E&M. The 737NG CSP Program provides fast access to critical
parts. It offers Enerjet cost saving (up to 30%) on their component repair and
inventory costs by providing access to a global pool of components. All
components will be available for shipment within 24 hours of request. Enerjet
can also replace a faulty unit quickly and easily with its own on-site
inventory. Enerjet's aircraft are joining a global 737NG pool of about 200
aircraft and is thereby able to benefit from all the advantages of this
dedicated OEM, MRO and Operator Program.
    Superior safety & reliability. "We are very proud of the confidence
Enerjet has shown in our MRO services by selecting us as their key strategic
supply chain partner," said Rob Pruim, AFI KLM E&M Vice President Sales
International. "Enerjet will benefit from AFI KLM E&M's experience, it's focus
on on-time-performance and it's strong operational support. We will provide
Enerjet the basis for a safe and reliable operation."
    Gareth Davies, Enerjet Vice President Tech Ops said, "The support that we
received from AFI-KLM during our start-up phase convinced us that this was a
true partnership and not just a contract service. With AFI KLM E&M's depth of
knowledge, support and overhaul capabilities we are in the position of being
able to provide our customers with superior safety and reliability. We look
forward to a long term relationship with AFI KLM E&M."
