MTU Maintenance Canada completes 1,500th shop visit

MTU Maintenance Canada has completed the 1,500th shop visit of its operational history, marking the occasion with the redelivery of a V2500-A5 engine operated by Spirit Airlines. Uwe Zachau, the company’s CEO and President, says that the broad expertise of the Canadian team with respect to legacy engines is at the root of this historic milestone.

“At MTU Maintenance Canada, we have seen some of the most popular engines in aviation history and the collective competence amassed over the last decades drives our success forward,” Zachau says. “I want to thank our engine experts for bringing their very best every day and to Spirit Airlines for entrusting their engines with MTU.”

Spirit Airlines, one of the largest low-fare airlines in the United States and the country’s seventh largest airline overall, has been an MTU customer since 2019. Tinashe Chigumira, Program Manager of Powerplant Operations at Spirit Airlines, shares that it gives her peace of mind knowing that the carrier’s assets are in such skilled hands.

“MTU is a true industry leader and trusted around the world thanks to its vast know-how and customer-focused approach to MRO,” said Chigumira. “It is great to have them in such proximity to our operations and we congratulate them on achieving this historic mark.”

In addition to the facility located in Delta, British Columbia, the V2500 engine is part of MTU’s MRO portfolios in Hannover, Germany, and Zhuhai, China.
