KLM<.> Engineering & Maintenance secured the largest third-party maintenance contract in its history when UK-based carrier Virgin Atlantic decided to extend its contract with the Dutch MRO provider. The new six-year contract is worth at least EUR 200 million in revenues. Neither party wishes to divulge more specific financial details about the contract.



The new agreement covers the maintenance of twelve Boeing 747-400s. Apart from airframe, engine and component maintenance, the contract also includes modification programs, alterations to the cabin interior, and the painting of aircraft in Virgin Atlantic colors.



Jeff Livings, Head of Engineering at Virgin Atlantic, and Daan Meyer, EVP – KLM Engineering & Maintenance, recently placed their signatures under the contract.



Virgin Atlantic has been one of KLM E&M`s most important customers since April 1994. The two companies have developed excellent ties over the years. E&M`s flexibility, high standards, and drive to honor all agreements were the main reasons underlying Virgin Atlantic`s decision to reward the KLM division with this major maintenance contract.
