Air France-KLM's maintenance arm is to provide component support for KLM Cityhopper's fleet of Embraer 190 regional jets.

KLM Cityhopper operates 22 190s, and the fleet will grow to 28 next year.

The Dutch regional carrier's contract with Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) covers repairs, spares-pool access and support of a main-base kit.

Spairliners, a 50:50 joint venture between AFI KLM E&M and Lufthansa Technik, supplies airlines with components for Airbus A380s and Embraer 170s, 175s, 190s and 195s.
