EPCOR, a wholly owned subsidiary of KLM Engineering & Maintenance, part of the AIR FRANCE KLM group, has won a contract from Kenya Airways, a leading African airline to handle maintenance for the APUs equipping Boeing 737 Next Generation (GTCP131-9B), Boeing 787 (APS5000) and Embraer 190 (APS2300) aircraft. The contract covers APU overhauls, repairs and logistics/AOG support, plus the supply of spare APUs.
Satisfied with the service level and superiority delivered under the earlier agreements, Kenya Airways has decided to broaden its partnership with AFI KLM E&M and EPCOR. Moreover, EPCOR is the only MRO to lavish its expertise on virtually the full array of APUs equipping key commercial aircraft, and is, in fact, the only (OEM licensed) MRO able to handle the three types of products for which Kenya Airways needed support solutions.
Martyn Haines, technical director at Kenya Airways, commented, “EPCOR’s multi-product profile on the APU maintenance market is without compare, and is a major asset for our airline in operational terms. We also have intimate knowledge of how well their solutions perform for having used their services in the past and we therefore have every confidence in the quality of the solutions that will be delivered under the terms of this latest partnership.”
EPCOR managing director Dennis Wetjens added, “EPCOR strives to assist its clients with all their needs, regardless of the product, and to adapt its solutions to meet all their expectations. This is what we are doing with Kenya Airways, and we are delighted that ‘the Pride of Africa’ is continuing to work with us.”
