The FAA has issued KLM an official warning.
If they don't improve maintenance procedures (especially administrative) before the end of January 2006 they won't get a new airworthiness certificate for the USA.

As a point of clarification, airworthiness certificates are proof that a particular aircraft is safe to fly. It is distinct from a type certificate.

I think the article must referring to KLM's part 145 repair station certificate.

Yes, which would mean withdrawal of landing and overflight rights if removed.

Quoting Jwenting (Reply 2):

Sorry, but what rubbish are you talking???

Withdrawal of KLMs Part 145 repair station cert would have absoulately NO effect on KLMs airline operations! (Assuming the relevant Dutch authorities dont pull their Dutch certificates)

Loosing their Part145 cert would mean that KLM could no longer perform maintaince & repairs on US registered aircraft. This could very well have an effect on its engineering business, but its airline business - NONE.

KLMs authority to fly in every country depends on thier DUTCH certs, not any extra FAA cert they may have to enhance their other business.
