MTU Maintenance announces it has signed a five-year LEAP-1A maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) contract with SriLankan Airlines, building on the two companies’ existing relationship that has also covered V2500 engines and leasing support.
“We are delighted to be expanding our long-standing and successful partnership,” says Richard Nuttall, CEO of SriLankan Airlines. “We trust in MTU Maintenance’s technical expertise and look forward to their fast, reliable and cost-efficient support for our growing fleet.” The national carrier currently operates a fleet of 22 Airbus A330 and A320/A321 aircraft and carries out flights across South Asia, Europe, the Far East and the Middle East.
“This contract is a testament to our long-term cooperation with SriLankan Airlines as they expand their fleet to include new generation engines,” adds Michael Schreyögg, Chief Program Officer, MTU Aero Engines. “We were the first MRO to add independent LEAP capabilities and will support SriLankan Airlines with safe, reliable and expert MRO in the years to come.”
