Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance has won a contract to service the CFM International Leap-1A engines powering Royal Brunei Airlines' Airbus A320neo fleet.

The MRO provider says that the deal covers "full maintenance and repair" services for the engines on seven A320neos.

Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that Royal Brunei has five of the twinjets in service, having received the first in May.

The airline has previously selected AFI KLM E&M to maintain components and APUs for its Boeing 787 fleet under a long-term contract.

"It was quite natural for us to turn to AFI KLM E&M to support our Leap engines," states head of engineering and maintenance Rob Woods.

AFI KLM E&M senior vice-president of engines product Michael Grootenboer describes the deal as part of the MRO provider's "first steps on the market" for Leap support.

"We want to be at the forefront of new technological and market developments," he adds.
