Gulf Air has chosen AFI KLM E&M for maintenance of the APS5000 auxiliary power units (APU) equipping the airline’s 10 new, incoming, Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. The long-term contract includes a guarantee covering APU replacement. The repair services will be provided by AFI KLM E&M subsidiary EPCOR. EPCOR has provided APU support for the Bahraini carrier’s Airbus A330s for a number of years.
“EPCOR’s proven TAT and service quality performance observed in the framework of our A330 APU contract convinced us to extend our partnership to this new type of APU and we are pleased to continue our relationship with them as we prepare to welcome new aircraft into our fleet,” said Captain Waleed Abdulhameed Al Alawi, Gulf Air Deputy CEO.
