Watchmen Daily Journal - - Business -

Cebu Pa­cific Air ex­pands its com­po­nent sup­port con­tract with Air France In­dus­tries KLM En­gi­neer­ing & Main­te­nance (AFI KLM E&M) to in­clude seven A321ceo and 32 A321­neo air­crafts. This is on top of the com­po­nent sup­port agree­ment signed last year be­tween Cebu Pa­cific and AFI KLM E&M cov­er­ing its fleet of Air­bus A320 air­craft.

Op­er­a­tions un­der sig­nif­i­cantly ex­tended con­tract will partly take place in Sin­ga­pore at Sin­ga­pore Com­po­nent So­lu­tions (SCS), a lo­cal joint ven­ture be­tween AFI KLM E&M and Sabena tech­nics. The ar­ray of ser­vices pro­vided un­der the longterm con­tract in­cludes com­po­nent re­pairs from Europe and Sin­ga­pore, as well as ac­cess to lo­cal spares pool.

Es­tab­lished in Septem­ber 2016, Sin­ga­pore Com­po­nent So­lu­tions (SCS) op­er­ates out of Sele­tar in­ter­na­tional air­port, with some 6,500 sq.m. of re­pair fa­cil­i­ties. SCS is one of the re­gion’s lead­ing multi-prod­uct and multi-fleet play­ers. It has be­come one of the most ef­fi­cient and re­spon­sive MROs in the re­gion, backed by re­gional lo­gis­tics cen­ters, parts in­ven­to­ries, and tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise of its par­ent firms. SCS spe­cial­izes in re­pairs for A320 and ATR fleets with a com­pre­hen­sive of­fer­ing for avion­ics, me­chan­i­cal and pneu­matic com­po­nents, along with aerostruc­ture and cabin and safety com­po­nents.

“In 2017, Cebu Pa­cific Air signed its first con­tract with us. They are thus a re­cent cus­tomer and it is a great honor for us to have been able to rapidly con­vince the air­line of our ex­per­tise and ef­fi­ciency. We have taken up a chal­lenge by demon­strat­ing our abil­ity to adapt to its am­bi­tious fleet plan and op­er­at­ing im­per­a­tives in very short or­der,” said Fab­rice De­france, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent for Com­mer­cial or AFI KLM E&M.

Be­tween 2018 and 2021, Cebu Pa­cific ex­pects de­liv­ery of 45 brand-new air­crafts as part of its fleet re­newal pro­gram.(PR)
