Embraer and MTU Maintenance Lease Services sign lease engine cooperation

MTU Maintenance Lease Services, a subsidiary of German aircraft engine manufacturer MTU Aero Engines, is enhancing its existing services through a cooperation with Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer Aviation International. A new service was created and foresees the provision of spare lease engines and lease engine support services to Embraer’s E-jet operators in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. According to the agreement, MTU Maintenance Lease Services will act as Embraer’s recognised supplier of CF34-10E lease engines and lease support services.
“More and more operators are demanding guaranteed spare engine availability to ensure uninterrupted flight operations,” said Martin Friis-Petersen, Managing Director of MTU Maintenance Lease Services. “With our continuously growing pool of spare engines and extensive know-how in the lease engine market, we can help them improve their operational reliability and cost competitiveness. Thanks to the cooperation with Embraer, we will be able to offer our support to an ever larger number of customers and strengthen our position as the leading independent service provider for the CF34-10E engine.”
MTU Maintenance Lease Services B.V. was founded in 2013 as a joint venture with the Japanese trading house Sumitomo Corporations and provides flexible and integrated short- and long-term lease engine services as well as stand-by arrangements and financial support through trusted partners.
