About us


AMES is an essential player in the market for the repair and overhaul of aerostructure components – from nacelles, radomes and engine fan stator modules to all metallic and composite parts on an aircraft.

Located in Dubai, AMES is a 50/50 joint venture of Safran Nacelles and Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance. It benefits from the two parent companies’ expertise and resources: AFI KLM E&M as a leading airline provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services; and Safran Nacelles’ know-how as an original equipment manufacturer (OEM), delivering highly-effective, rapid-response aircraft maintenance solutions.

AMES operates a state-of-the-art repair facility in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone. It leverages the extensive human, technical and logistics resources of its two parent companies, enabling AMES to offer a comprehensive portfolio of customizable, mix- and-match services. In addition to inspections, repairs and on-wing inspections, the company’s service portfolio covers the management of a pool of nacelle spare parts and assistance in optimizing maintenance schedules.

With approvals from the GCAA, EASA and FAA airworthiness authorities, AMES organizes working parties that include inspection surveys for the development of tailored predictive maintenance programs to boost efficiency and shorten turn-around times (TATs). Local engineering repairs – plus spares pool access that features the leasing of parts and routine replacements – also increase the overhaul efficiency. As a result, AMES’ clients benefit from lower operating costs that contribute to their bottom line.

Innovation and competitiveness
in the heart of the Middle East

Combining the skills and expertise of a leading aircraft maintenance specialist and a world-class manufacturer of nacelle systems, the solutions provided by AMES are recognized for their innovative qualities. The two partners offer their joint capabilities to customers across the Middle East, Persian Gulf and Indian peninsula, providing services for a full range of nacelle and engine types from such manufacturers as Rolls-Royce, General Electric, CFM International and Engine Alliance. Its expanded capabilities also cover the repair of radomes and composite aerostructures, as well as repair of jet engine fan stator modules.

The experience of AMES’ two parent companies guarantees unparalleled technical know-how and optimal service quality. Its strategic location in Dubai is an essential asset for its customers, who benefit from local support and an agile, flexible response tailored to their needs – eliminating the need for time-consuming, costly transfers of hardware and components outside the region.

Combining the state-of-the-art technical know-how of an equipment manufacturer and the maintenance services expertise of a leading MRO, AMES delivers high value-added solutions to customers, with a presence virtually on their doorstep.
