Reunion-based carrier Air Austral has sealed an agreement with Air France-KLM's engineering division to support fully its Boeing 777 fleet.

The agreement, disclosed at the Paris Air Show, covers two 777-300ERs and three 777-200s.

It follows Air Austral's introduction of the larger 777 type into its fleet. Air France Industries and KLM Engineering & Maintenance had already previously supported the 777-200s.

Air Austral is bringing in the 777-300ERs for new connections to Sydney and Noumea.
