MTU Maintenance Zhuhai has completed its 1500th shop visit since it started operations in 2003. The milestone was achieved through the scheduled shop visit of a CFM565B from an overseas customer.
The engine MRO operator says: “This highlights both the strong recent growth of this engine program and the increasing global reach of MTU Maintenance Zhuhai.”
In 2013 the company repaired and overhauled over 200 engines. Of which about one third came from overseas; mainly from operators in the Americas. For engines inducted over the course of 2014 so far, this share has grown to above 40%.
