GE Aviation has signed an agreement with Xiamen Airlines to provide GEnx-1B engines to power its additional six Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. Xiamen Airlines also expanded a TrueChoice Material agreement for the new GEnx-1B fleet for the new and used material and advance repairs needed for engine MRO services. The engine order and TrueChoice Material agreement are valued at more than $630 million at list price and over the life of the contract.


Honeywell Aerospace has signed a licensing agreement with Air New Zealand allowing the airline to overhaul and repair auxiliary power units (APUs) at its Christchurch engineering and maintenance base. The eight-year deal will see Air New Zealand as the only certified Honeywell maintenance shop for the APU 131-9A model in Oceania and will see the airline maintain and repair APUs for Air New Zealand and third-party customers based around the Asia-Pacific region. The agreement will also create 45 new jobs in Christchurch, the majority of which are high skilled engineering jobs.


Air New Zealand has also selected the Honeywell APU 131-9A for its new fleet of A320neo aircraft. The airline announced in June 2014 that it was investing in new A320neo aircraft to refresh its international A320 narrowbody fleet. The first aircraft is due for delivery in late 2017. The airline will also retrofit its existing A320 short haul fleet of 13 aircraft with Honeywell APUs.


ITP has signed a 12-year engine MRO contract with Cebu Pacific of the Philippines for the full support of the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW127M engines that power the airline’s 24 ATR 72-500 and ATR 72-600 aircraft. In total, this agreement will cover aircraft with an estimated duration of 12 years. ITP has been providing MRO services to Cebu Pacific throughout the last seven years and this agreement signals the renewal of the partnership between both companies. ITP will be providing customer support from its representative office in Singapore, while the engines will be repaired at the company’s facilities in Ajalvir, Spain.

The work will be carried out by MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg.

Rolls-Royce has won an order from Icelandair to provide SelectCare services for RB211 engines thatpower 28 Boeing 757-200/300s. SelectCare allows customers to tailor the services they require across an agreed number of engine shop visits to match their service needs and budget. It fits between Rolls-Royce’s fully comprehensive TotalCare service, which maximises engine time on wing in addition to giving long-term cost certainty on a dollar-per-flying-hour basis, and Foundation Services, where customers contract for shop visit support on an individual time and materials basis.
