Corendon Airlines and AFI KLM E&M have signed a new contract for six additional CFM56-7B engines that will further expand the contract renewed in 2019 for engine support for the Corendon Airline’s Boeing 737-800 fleet.
Two of the engines are in service with Corendon’s Turkish fleet, while the other four are owned by its Maltese subsidiary Corendon Airlines Europe. The services will be performed at AFI KLM E&M’s engine shop in Amsterdam over the next several months.
Yildiray Karaer, co-founder and CEO of Corendon Airlines, said: “Beyond the technical quality of the offer, we appreciate the frank and direct relationship offered by AFI KLM E&M. Their experts are always very clear upstream about what is and is not possible – a transparency that is essential for us to make our operations reliable.”
Ton Dortmans, executive vice president KLM E&M, added: “It is an honour for us to retain the trust of Corendon. Our teams know this customer well, and were eager to respond to this new demand with an offer exactly adapted to their needs and those of their new aircraft.”
Corendon Airlines and its Maltese affiliate Corendon Airlines Europe operate a fleet of 35 Boeing 737-800 / MAX 8, offering flights and charter services to Europe, Asia and Africa. The Corendon Airlines network covers several dozen countries and destinations, including major airports in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, and Turkey.
