Cebu Pacific Air taps Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance to provide component support for its Airbus A320 fleet.

The selection of AFI KLM E&M came following a call for tenders by Cebu Pacific in September 2016 for the carrier’s expanding fleet of Airbus passenger jets.

The long term contract covers a fleet of over 40 Airbus A320s and encompasses full component support and solutions, including repairs and local pool access to maximize aircraft availability, for both its A320s and its future A321neos. The low-cost airline currently has a fleet of 59 aircraft, comprised of four Airbus A319, 36 Airbus A320ceo, seven Airbus A330, eight ATR 72-500, and four ATR 72-600 aircraft.

“This is our first agreement with Cebu Pacific and also our first component support contract in the strategic Philippines market,” said Gery Mortreux, Executive Vice President of Air France Industries.

Between 2017 and 2021, Cebu Pacific expects delivery of 45 brand-new aircraft as part of its fleet renewal program. Comprised of 12 ATR 72-600 aircraft, one brand-new Airbus A330, and 32 Airbus A321neo, the new aircraft will bring the CEB

Comprised of 12 ATR 72-600 aircraft, one brand-new Airbus A330, and 32 Airbus A321neo, the new aircraft will bring the Cebu Pacific’s fleet to 85 by 2021.

In 2017, AFI KLM E&M will see a sharp rise in the number of A320 support contracts, especially in Asia. In so doing, the Group is asserting its expertise on this aircraft, especially in the A320 and A321neo arena.
