Dakar at the double for 2AS

Posted 24 January 2020 · Add Comment

Senegal’s Blaise Diagne International Airport (BDIA) in Dakar has joined forces with global MRO player, Air France International/KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFIKLME&M), to provide support for both Air Senegal and airlines using the airport that opened in December 2017.

AFIKLME&M has a track record in MRO extending back more than three-quarters of a century and it’s this international expertise that local airport ground-handling and MRO organisation, 2AS, is tapping into.
The partnership agreement was signed at the Paris Air Show, held at Le Bourget in June, in the presence of Senegal’s tourism minister, Alioune Sarr.
The new joint venture is named 2AS Technics and it will provide online maintenance support for airlines at BDIA, where it already has Air Senegal as a launch customer.
According to Ibrahima Kane, 2AS Technics’ MD, this partnership is a major opportunity and represents a real added value for Air Senegal’s operations as AFIKLME&M has already signed an agreement to support the national airline’s Airbus A330neo, A319 and ATR 72-600 fleet that includes pre-take-off maintenance, access to the spare parts pool, and the provision of a local stock of equipment.
Today around 33 airlines serving more than 40 destinations operate into BDIA and the new partnership will ensure that MRO support will be available as required.
