 Regional has signed a long-term agreement with AFI KLM E&M for the maintenance of the Auxiliary Power Units (APUs) equipping its fleet of Embraer E-170s and E-190s, for a total of 26 aircraft. The scope of the contract, carried out by EPCOR, the AFI KLM E&M group subsidiary specializing in the maintenance of APUs and pneumatic systems, includes repair services for the APUs concerned and, where necessary, the supply of spare units.

EPCOR expertise and capabilities decisive 

In addition to setting and offering competitive prices and industry-standard maintenance lead-times, EPCOR distinguishes itself through extensive know-how and experience. The AFI KLM E&M subsidiary has developed extensive skills and capabilities on all types of APU products, including the APS2300 equipping Embraer E-170s and E-190s. As a repair station approved by APS2300 manufacturer Hamilton Sundstrand, EPCOR maintains the APUs of Regional and KLM Cityhopper, which also operates Embraer E-190s. EPCOR Managing Director Romain Helmer emphasized “EPCOR’s expertise with the APS2300 allows us to efficiently support the operations of the regional airlines backed by the AFI KLM E&M parent company.” For his part, Jacques Pauty, Regional’s Purchasing Director, said he was delighted with “this cooperation, which Regional can rely on to benefit from top-quality maintenance services and so drive the operational performance of the E-jet fleet.”
