MTU Maintenance and BA CityFlyer have extended their exclusive CF34-8E and -10E MRO contract to year-end 2023.
“MTU Maintenance has supported BA CityFlyer with cost-effective, reliable maintenance support since 2010,” says head of engineering, BA CityFlyer Mark Leather.
“We’re delighted to have extended our contract and continue working with MTU Maintenance. MTU knows and understands our needs both on and off-wing. They are committed to providing us flexible and intelligent solutions. We highly appreciate this dedication and service.”
“We are engine experts for the CF34 fleet and have carried out over 1,300 shop visits on this engine family to date,” says SVP MRO programmes at MTUAero Engines, Martin Friis-Petersen. “We are dedicated to providing BA CityFlyer with the excellent and highly-customised services they are used to from MTU.”
BA CityFlyer is a wholly-owned subsidiary of British Airways. It flies 24 E190 and E170 aircraft from London City airport to destinations across the United Kingdom and Europe.
When business destinations are reduced on weekends from London City, the airline serves leisure routes from other UK airports such as London Stansted and Manchester to European destinations such as Greece, Portugal and Spain.
MTU Maintenance offers a whole host of tailored and intelligent solutions for CF34 customers – these range from MRO, leasing and asset management and include on-site support services as well as engine trend monitoring, accessory and LRU support as well as much more.
Services are carried out by MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg, which has been a GE-authorised service partner for well over 15 years. In 2019, a 30 per cent expansion of the facility was completed to increase capacity and efficiencies for customers.
