MTU Maintenance is set to open a dedicated on-site service facility in Germany’s Brandenburg region next month.
The new service centre will house quick-turn engine bays and act as a base for a dedicated on-site and AOG team for CF34-8/-10, CFM56-7B and, later in 2022, CFM56-5B and V2500 engines.
MTU Aero Engines’ chief program officer Michael Schreyögg said: “We made the strategic decision to increase our presence and support in Europe to capture demand post Covid-19.
“On-site support as a way of prolonging time on-wing and keeping airlines flying has been key to airlines throughout the pandemic.
“We expect this trend to continue in years to come and are ensuring we are available to customers around the clock – providing the technical expertise and high quality they have come to expect from MTU.”
MTU Maintenance completes over 1,000 events annually for more than 400 customers worldwide.
With on-site and AOG teams based in the Americas, Europe and Asia, and over 120 authority approvals, MTU provides on-site, near-wing and quick turn engine services.
