Pratt & Whitney Signs Agreement For Repair Services With MTU Maintenance

Apr 15,2019

10th April, 2019: Pratt & Whitney has signed a long-term agreement (LTA) with MTU Maintenance (MTU) for repair services. MTU will work to offer additional support for Pratt & Whitney operational commercial engines, including the PW2000, PW6000, and the International Aero Engines V2500.

"The agreement marks the first LTA that Aftermarket has signed with MTU for operational commercial engine repair services. MTU is not only a partner to Pratt & Whitney on the Pratt & Whitney GTF engine programme but is also a key supplier for our operational commercial engine repair requirements," said Heather Walton, senior director, Aftermarket Supply Chain at Pratt & Whitney. "We have a strong relationship with MTU and have worked closely in the past to provide support for our customers. We are excited to continue to build upon that relationship with them through our various fleets of operational commercial engines."

The V2500 engine is provided through IAE International Aero Engines AG, a multinational aero engine consortium whose shareholders comprise Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corporation; Pratt & Whitney Aero Engines International GmbH; MTU Aero Engines GmbH and Japanese Aero Engines Corporation.


According to statistics, the investment of Asia-pacific airlines in aviation material invento?ry is 4 to 5 times higher than that of European and American airlines. The reasons are mainly attributed to relatively high spare parts guarantee requirements, more interior decoration renovation and refit, inefficient customs clearance, lack of aviation material sharing mechanism, geographical location farther from the original factory, large passen?ger aircraft with a higher proportion and other factors. Among them, the original factory (OEM) is the biggest beneficiary in the aviation material industry. In the future, OEM will gain more benefits in the aviation material field by continuously penetrating the after-sales market. Third-party service providers (MRO) and airlines are looking for more ways to avoid their interests being compressed.


Under this background, the 3rd Annual Civil Aircraft Operation Support Technology International Forum will held in the city of Tianjin on June 12th - 13th, attract aviation authorities & regulators, more than 30+ airlines, 10+MROs & OEMs, parts & components suppliers, Leasing Companies will participate in this years forum.
