Etihad Airways receives TRUEngine designation for CF6 Engines.
 
GE awarded its TRUEngine designation, its program to show engines have been maintained to OEM configuration, for its GE-CF6-powered Airbus A330 aircraft to Etihad Airways. Launched in 2008 and originally just including CFM56, the program has since expanded to include CF6, GEnx and CF34 engines. To qualify for TRUEngine status, the engine configuration, overhaul practices, spare parts and repairs used to service an engine must comply with GE-issued engine manuals and other maintenance recommendations. The qualification is obtained through the customers declaration of compliance and GE’s verification of customer submitted maintenance records.
