Pratt & Whitney and Lufthansa Technik sign strategic agreement to strengthen Geared Turbofan engine MRO services

Lufthansa Technik has signed a strategic network agreement to become a key member of the Pratt & Whitney Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine MRO network offering the full scope of MRO services on PW1100G-JM and PW1500G engines.

The Pratt & Whitney GTF engine network currently includes Pratt & Whitney and its GTF engine collaborators, MTU Aero Engines and Japanese Aero Engines Corporation.

“The PW1000G family will be one of the main engine types in commercial aviation for the next decades. Lufthansa Technik will serve the full scope of MRO services and will bring long-lasting and leading expertise in engine overhaul, engine parts repair, and engineering support to this co-operation,” said Dr. Johannes Bussmann, chairman of the Executive Board of Lufthansa Technik. “Our companies have a long and successful history as Lufthansa Technik has already been providing MRO services on other Pratt & Whitney engines for decades.”
“The GTF engine maintenance network consists of the best MRO providers in the industry,” said Matthew Bromberg, president of Pratt & Whitney Aftermarket. “As Lufthansa is the launch customer of the GTF engine, Lufthansa Technik is well-suited to provide engine maintenance services to our future GTF engine customers.”
