Company Profile

  • 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.

    Airline majors trust AFI for their A340 and A330 maintenance

    Air France Industries was the first MRO shop to carry out 4C-5-year checks on the A340 and A330 widebody passenger aircraft. With over 30 major overhauls of this type to its credit to date, AFIs experience goes back a long way. Air France Industries has provided heavy maintenance services to the likes of Virgin Atlantic, Air Mauritius, China Eastern, Sri Lankan Airlines, Airbus Asset Management, ILFC and Air China.

  • Continuous Improvement in Aircraft Maintenance Programmes

    A Proven Fleet Management Track Record

    Providing engineering services for all 249 aircraft in the Air France fleet, AFI has unrivalled expertise enabling it to offer its customers the fleet-engineering services they require, together with the adaptation and follow-up of their maintenance policy. Air France Industries provides fleet engineering services for all Airbus aircraft and the B737, B747, B767 and B777 Boeing families, as well as for the French Air Forces C135 transports and AWACS surveillance aircraft.

    Fleet Engineering Services

    These notably comprise:

    • optimization of maintenance programmes,
    • research and incorporation of manufacturer modifications,
    • development of workscopes,
    • permanent reliability research and follow-up,
    • relations with aviation authorities and manufacturers
  • Wide Experience on Different Aircraft Types

    For many years now, Air France Industries has been doing extensive alteration work on a very wide range of aircraft types. 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.
