Engine MRO At Farnborough #FIA14


Lots of engine maintenance and support announcements are coming from Farnborough this week.

For instance, Jet Airways added five more years to its GE Aviation OnPoint agreement for GE90 engines powering the Indian operator’s Boeing 777-300ERs. GE says that extension covering 22 GE90s is worth $200 million.

CFM made several TRUEngine announcements, including renewing ST Aerospace’s authorized MRO provider status. In addition, China’s Zhejiang Loong Airlines selected CFM56-5B engines for its Airbus A20ceo aircraft, as well as a Rate per Flight Hour service agreement for guaranteed maintenance costs. All of Loong’s CFM56-5Bs have TRUEngine status. Several other airlines selected CFM long-term service agreements, including China’s 9 Air, Mexico’s Interjet and UK’s Monarch Airlines.

Rolls-Royce has been quieter on the aftermarket side this week (but making lots of headlines with the Trent 7000), but it did reveal that United Airlines extended its TotalCare agreement for RB211-535 engines that power the airline’s Boeing 757s.

It’s not just airlines that are signing these deals, however. Airbus Corporate Jet Center enhanced its Enginelife partnership with Snecma to offer its corporate jet customers engine power-by-the-hour support. Airbus also offers airframe maintenance, component exchanges, field support and airworthiness monitoring as part of its VIP Pass services.
