Sunclass Airlines has signed MTU Maintenance to provide MRO services for its CFM56-5B engines in an exclusive five-year contract.

    The agreement covers comprehensive MRO support, AOG and on-site services as well as spare engine leasing.

    Danish charter airline Sunclass Airlines (formerly Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia) operates a fleet of sixteen CFM56-5B engines powering eight A321 aircraft.

    “We look forward to receiving excellent care, innovative and cost-effective MRO solutions, including used LLP material supply, as well as individually-tailored technical support.”

    MTU Aero Engines’ SVP MRO programs Martin Friis-Petersen commented: “We are extremely confident that our range of services and extensive engine expertise will enable us to provide Sunclass Airlines with highly reliable and cost-effective MRO as well as maximum performance and life from their engines.”
