The GEnx engine network of overhaul facilities is expanding due to engine production acceleration. GE Aviation announced a GE-branded service agreement with Air-France-KLM for maintenance, repair and overhaul of the GEnx-1B and a new joint venture with Evergreen Aviation Technologies that will provide MRO services for both the GEnx-1B and -2B.
