Air France Industries has won additional work from Royal Jordanian Airlines, with a six-year component support contract. The maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service company will provide access to the component pool for a fleet of six Airbus A320-family aircraft.

Royal Jordanian will get this support on a per flight-hour basis. A maintenance base kit, too, will be installed in Amman, Jordan. The four A320s and two A321s are being delivered between last November and November this year.

Yesterday, AFI also announced a new contract to provide full repair support for the General Electric GE90 engines on Vietnam Airlines Boeing 777 fleet. The deal covers six aircraft over a three-year period. The carrier has four other 777s not powered by GE.

AFI will provide the Vietnamese flagcarrier with an exclusive service for time and materials, plus spare engines. It will also cover on-wing work at all line stations.
