Hey,
I just read that Aveos signed a 12y MRO contract with Air France. What about Air France Industries? Why don't they do that MRO inhouse?

I've also heard that Air France might sell 20% of the AFI shares or even hive it off completely, maybe there is a connection between those two facts?

Each piece of information would be appreciated!

It is not always the best way to do it in house. For example if you lack capacity at the in house facility, it might be more beneficial to the group as a whole to outsource.

Long contract means they got a good deal.

No doubt there are numerous complexities involved.

Hey,
to hive off means to start a new company under the leadership of the mothercompany. Now AFI belongs to Air France, after hiving it off AFI would be a complete new company but Air France would still manage AFI's business.

Quote:
hive sth off phrasal verb

to separate one part of a company, usually by selling it
The plan is to hive off individual companies as soon as they are profitable.


Basically its the same like for example Lufthansa did with Lufthansa Technik.
