Following on from its approval by the EASA and FAA, the AFI KLM E&M group has now received authorization from the CAAC to carry out maintenance operations on CFM International LEAP engines.
AFI KLM E&M formally announced it received at the end of October authorization from the Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC) to carry out maintenance operations on CFM International LEAP engines. The authorization delivered by the Chinese authority enables AFI KLM E&M to carry out all types of operations (both on-wing and on-site as shop activities) for LEAP-1A/-1B engines, parts and control units, for all customers in China - including both airlines and MROs. Having obtained the same authorization from the EASA and FAA in 2018, the MRO service provider is extending the scope of its LEAP support services, which are now within reach for customers on both sides of the globe.
The CAAC approval comes at a time when AFI KLM E&M has already acquired solid experience with the new-generation engines that power the A320neo and the Boeing 737MAX. Experience which can now be shared with its customers throughout China’s dynamic and expanding market.
