The long-term contract signed between Royal Air Maroc (RAM) and AFI KLM E&M organizes component repair and overhaul services for Boeing 787s owned by the Moroccan flag carrier, with dedicated access to the AFI KLM E&M spares pool at Amsterdam.

This latest agreement is an extension to the contract inked in January 2013, when RAM entrusted component support for its fleet of over 30 Boeing 737NG aircraft to AFI KLM E&M. To close the deal, AFI KLM E&M set itself apart through the adaptability, high performance, and competitiveness of its component support offering – today the market leading offer for the 787 product.

Royal Air Maroc and AFI KLM E&M have been partners in aircraft maintenance for over three decades. In particular, the two groups set up a joint venture in 2009 that specializes in narrow-body airframe maintenance. Dubbed Aerotechnic Industries (ATI), the 50/50 joint venture is headquartered in Casablanca. It forms a centre of excellence for C and D checks for all A320 and Boeing 737 fleets operating in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
