F&E Aircraft Maintenance (FEAM) is set to provide full handling line maintenance services at Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) in support of Emirates, the airline said.

"Emirates' selection of FEAM at ORD provides us with a great opportunity to build on our existing relationship and continue to find ways to work together as partners here in the U.S.," said Peter Kuan, director of Business Development-International for Emirates.

FEAM would be servicing Boeing 777 passenger and freighter aircraft with the new agreement, Emirates said. All work would be certified and released in alignment with FEAM’s United Arab Emirates General Civil Aviation Authority approval authorization.

Headquartered in Miami, Florida, FEAM has a network of 27 domestic line stations. The company holds certifications from multiple global aviation regulatory authorizes. It trumpets being the first U.S.-based maintenance, repair and overhaul provider to receive Japanese Civil Aeronautics Board line maintenance approval.
