Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFIKLM E&M), and Saudia Aerospace Engineering Industries (SAEI), the leading aviation technical solutions provider in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, have signed an agreement to enter into a long term strategic partnership.

Through a power by the hour scheme, AFIKLM E&M will support Saudia Airlines with Boeing 777 and 787 Aircraft Components and will further assist SAEI to develop the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) capabilities for future Airbus and Boeing Aircraft at SAEI’s facilities in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. In turn AFIKLM E&M will use SAEI as a subcontractor for those parts as SAEI already holds existing capabilities.

Nader Khalawi, Chief Executive Officer of SAEI, said: “with a new facility and advanced capabilities, our trust-based partnership with AFIKLM E&M supports our growth plans through extending our cooperation on components support for our current and future customers’ fleet.”

Franck Terner, EVP AIR FRANCE KLM Engineering & Maintenance added: "The signing of this important agreement with one of the biggest MRO in the Middle East further demonstrates the competitiveness of our 777 and 787 offering. We are honored to be able to strengthen our long-term cooperation with SAEI"

SAEI is the leading aviation technical solutions provider in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Gulf and Middle East regions backed by over 55 years of experience and more than 5,200 highly qualified and trained professional workforce, 92% of which are Saudi nationals. SAEI holds GACA, FAA, EASA and several other regional and international authorities’ approvals.
