Airbus Defence Space has agreed terms and conditions with the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) on a wide scope of In-Service Support (ISS) work packages to maintain its incoming A400M fleet of four aircraft, with the first one already delivered in March 2015. The contract with RMAF proposes a performance based support consisting in spare availability services and on-site technical and maintenance support.

In such a framework, Airbus DS has successfully signed an In-Service Support (ISS) contract with Sepang Aircraft Engineering (SAE), a local Malaysian company, part of Airbus Group with 40% shares.

With a contract value of nearly five million US dollars and four years duration, the project and negotiation have required more than a year to be completed and involved many teams within Airbus DS, including A400M Programme office, Material Services, Procurement, Information Management, Engineering and MRO
