Iberia Maintenance has received a new authorisation from Pratt & Whitney, one of the largest aircraft engine manufacturers to service the GTF PW1100G-JM engine, powering the Airbus A320neo family. The Iberia Engine Shop will be one of a select number of shops authorised worldwide to overhaul and maintain this engine model.
Iberia Maintenance has been working on this project for more than two years, investing in the latest engine MRO technologies for, amongst others, grinding, balancing and test data acquisition, adapting both its 52,500 m² engine workshops, specialised in V2500, CFM56 and RB211 engines, and its test cell, located in Madrid to be ready to accept this new technology engine.
Iberia Maintenance will receive its first GTF engine in 2023.
This contract demonstrates Iberia Maintenance’s high-level of experience and competitiveness and its ability to adapt to new market demands. It is a strategic step to expand its scope of activity and service to new generation engines that will be powering aircraft fleets during the coming decades.
