About us


A 50-50 joint venture between AFI KLM E&M (AIR FRANCE KLM Group) and Safran Nacelles, AMES provides maintenance and repair services for all engine nacelles types and aerostructures parts, serving airlines operating out of the Middle East region. AMES operates a state-of-the-art repair shop located in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone. It also leverages the extensive human, technical and logistics resources of its two parent companies, enabling AMES to offer a comprehensive portfolio of customizable, mix & match services. In addition to repair and on-wing inspection, the service portfolio also includes management of a pool of nacelles spare parts and assistance in optimizing maintenance schedules.

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 engine nacelles, the solutions provided by AMES stand out for their innovative qualities. The two partners offer their joint capabilities to Middle East customers, providing services for a full range of nacelle types : Rolls-Royce, General Electric, CFM International and Pratt&Whitney engines, and since 2017 radomes, flight controls and all other aerostructures parts. The experience of the two parent companies guarantees the unparalleled technical know-how and optimal Quality of Service that AMES is offering. The local anchorage of the joint venture in Dubai, in the heart of the Middle East, is an essential asset for its customers, which benefit from local support and a nimble response tailored to their needs, removing the need for time-consuming, costly, fleet transfers 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 a high value-added offering to customers virtually on their doorstep.
