Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA) has signed a six-year extension of a rate per flight hour engine services agreement with GE Aerospace.
It covers NCA’s GEnx-2B engines on the airline’s Boeing 747-8 freighter fleet.
NCA and GE have a long-standing relationship that began with the CF6 engine. Today, NCA operates an extensive fleet of aircraft powered by GE’s CF6 and GEnx engines.
The rate per flight hour engine services agreement offerings incorporate an array of GE capabilities and customisation across an engine’s lifecycle. It is underpinned by GE’s data and analytic capabilities and experience, which the company said helps reduce maintenance burden and service disruptions for customers.
“The rate per flight hour engine services agreement between NCA and GE strengthens our partnership and will ensure our GEnx engines are covered into the new decade,” said NCA’s managing director of engineering & maintenance Toshiaki Kobori.
GE Aerospace’s general manager of GEnx product line Dave Kircher commented: “GE Aerospace is proud to support NCA and its GEnx fleet. It’s an honour to continue the relationship and provide exemplary service and support.”
