MTU Maintenance has signed an extended eight-year GE branded service agreement for CF34 engines with GE Aviation.

    The agreement enables MTU to continue serving as an authorised service provider for CF34-3, CF34-8C, CF34-8E and CF34-10E engines until 2030.

    The company will also perform OEM maintenance, overhaul workscoping and component repairs and provide comprehensive materials support.

    “We are delighted to continue our established partnership with GE Aviation with this CF34 licensing agreement,” said MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg managing director and senior vice president André Sinanian. “We recently celebrated the redelivery of our 500th CF34-10E and have carried out 1,400 shop visits and several hundred on-site events for the entire engine family since 2003.

    “Regional engines such as the CF34 will play an important role in the industry recovery post Covid-19, and we look forward to supporting operators with the excellent technical expertise and cost-effective MRO solutions they have come to expect from MTU.”

    GE Aviation’s regional and business aviation engines and services general manager Cristina Seda-Hoelle commented: “Since 2002, MTU has been a close partner with GE in the CF34 MRO network. With more than 4,000 CF34 engines in service, GE is very pleased to extend this critical partnership for the long-term strength of the programme.”
