F-GUOC's heavy maintenance visit

General CargoAug - 08, 2019
Our Air France Cargo Boeing 777-200 full freighter, registered F-GUOC, has now completed its major overhaul (between 21 July and 25 August)

During its major overhaul, alternative, workable solutions (wet lease) were put in place to maintain our scheduled flights and meet your logistical needs.

Being an experienced carrier, we at Air France KLM Martinair Cargo understand the critical importance of safety and reliability. Our expertly maintained fleet consists of modern aircraft manufactured by Airbus, Boeing and Embraer.

Aircraft maintenance is one of three businesses at Air France-KLM. From its very beginnings in 1933, Air France decided to handle its own aircraft maintenance operations. Its expertise has made the AFI KLM E&M commercial brand today´s second biggest in multi-product maintenance worldwide.

Know-how, attention to detail and expertise are put into practice in a wide variety of professions at Air France Industries (AFI) with the goal of guaranteeing the airworthiness of the fleet and ensuring safe flights.

The Air France Cargo Boeing 777 full freighter features capacity never seen before on a twin-engined aircraft. With a maximum payload of 102 tonnes, a total capacity of 37 pallets and a main deck that can take 3-metre pallets, the Boeing 777 freighter can carry virtually any type of cargo. The B777-200F is one of the most technologically advanced aircraft in the industry.

After ten years of loyal service around the globe, it was time for our aircraft, the F-GUOC to undergo a major overhaul. This aircraft operated its first flight in 2009.

This maintenance visit is by far the most comprehensive and demanding check. It takes place once every 5 to 10 years. During the check, the entire aircraft is more or less taken apart for inspection and overhaul. Such a check generally takes up to 50,000 man-hours and five weeks to complete depending on the aircraft, the number of technicians involved and the availability of spare parts.

Following its comprehensive inspection and overhaul, the freighter is now ready to be taken back into operation around the globe!
