Gulf Air has awarded MTU Maintenance a contract to continue providing MRO services for the V2500-A5 engines powering the airline’s A321ceo fleet.
The four-year agreement covers comprehensive MRO services, LRU support, engine trend monitoring and on-site services, as well as spare engine support.
Gulf Air’s chief executive officer Captain Waleed Al Alawi said: “Gulf Air has been maintaining its V2500 engines of A321ceo fleet at MTU Maintenance facilities for the past 10 years under the engine OEM contract. During these 10 years, MTU Maintenance has demonstrated they are the right partners for Gulf Air as we drive forward with our fleet renewal programme in preparation to welcome more new aircraft to replace and modernise our fleet.
“We trust them to take excellent technical care of our engines, and are convinced they will provide us with the reliable, flexible and cost-efficient services we expect.”
MTU Aero Engines’ chief program officer Michael Schreyögg commented: “We are very proud to have been selected by Gulf Air for this contract, which offers the best care package for their engines.
“We are extremely confident that our in-depth under-standing of the V2500 engine and our many years of experience will enable us to provide Gulf Air with the flexible, cost-effective and highly customized engine MRO services they need.”
