70 years' Experience in Aircraft Maintenance
AFI’s new narrowbody heavy maintenance facility at Toulouse-Blagnac has been fully operational since december 2003. It is located less than 2km from the Airbus assembly lines. The new unit will help Air France Industries build further on its long-standing expertise, continue to improve productivity, and reduce TAT. Its location within the Toulouse Blagnac airport zone will provide easier access for customers.
The World’s Shortest TAT for the A320 Family
Air France Industries can carry out heavy maintenance on all aircraft in the Airbus A320 family as well as on the B737-200/300/400 and 500. In the space of a few short years, this activity has been propelled to levels of operating excellence unmatched in Europe, as heavy maintenance on aircraft in the A320 family can now be completed in an average TAT of 28 days and that includes the paint job! The result can be achieved through the experience accumulated by personnel gained from over 200 major A320 overhauls carried out to date.

On behalf of the French air force, AFI has carried out projects on the Sarigue NG and AWACS aircraft. Air France Industries can also satisfy the needs of its civilian customers with modifications related to navigation, communication and IFEs, regardless of whether expectations are fuelled by regulatory or operating requirements. AFI can carry out “supplement type certificate” (STC) work, ie, certified modifications on the following systems: GPWS, ACARS, BRNAV, SITA, TCAS, SATCOM, RVSM, and HFDL.
Cabin Modification Engineering
AFI’s experts have wide experience with cabin version modification work for the Air France fleet. Their expertise ranges from design (engineering) to supplying the customer with the associated kit. Once the design has been finalized, customers retain the possibility of having Air France Industries carry out the alteration work. For example, AFI was responsible for engineering and changes to the complete makeover of A340 cabins for Sri Lankan Airlines.
