ST Engineering has been awarded CFM56-7B engine maintenance contracts from two Asia-headquartered airlines.
The company’s commercial aerospace business will carry out heavy maintenance of CFM56-7B engines for the two airlines at its engine MRO facilities in Singapore and Xiamen, China.
“As flying activities continue to climb back up towards the pre-pandemic level, maintenance needs for the CFM56-7B engine are expected to rise in the next few years,” said ST Engineering’s SVP/GM of engine services Tay Eng Guan.
“These two airlines have been ST Engineering’s longstanding customers for over ten years, and we are pleased to continue our support for their engine maintenance needs, and to help see through their recovery and growth.”
ST Engineering noted its expansion into support capabilities for LEAP engines. The company started offering quick-turn services for the LEAP-1B engine at its Singapore facility in early 2022, and will provide the same service at its Xiamen facility this year. ST Engineering will soon also provide solutions for the LEAP-1A engine, starting with quick-turn services in the first half of 2023.
