Cathay Pacific subsidiary HK Express has contracted Iberia Maintenance to maintain 32 V2500 engines powering its Airbus A320ceo and A321ceo fleet.
Efficiency improvements, such as the extension of engine repair in-house capability, workscope adjustments to ensure shop visit optimisation and used serviceable material (USM) sourcing from the market, were cited as the key differentiators in the offer.
“We are so very honoured that HK Express has chosen to award Iberia MRO with the maintenance of its V2500 engines,” said Iberia Maintenance’s chief technical officer Andy Best.
“This award is a testament to the Iberia maintenance teams striving for improvement as we continue to develop our service offering on the V2500, working closely with industry partners to bring real value to the customer.”
HK Express’ general manager, maintenance and engineering Alan Tang commented: “Our vision is to be the leading best practice low-cost carrier in Asia. The HK Express team always looks for the most optimal maintenance solution based on the key guiding principles of agility, efficiency and simplicity. We hope this partnership with Iberia Maintenance will be part of the enabler to our vision.”
