AFI KLM E&M and Tunisair signed a new Time & Material engine support contract in late December 2017 covering the CFM56-5A, CFM56-5B and CFM56-7B engines powering the Tunisair fleet’s sixteen Airbus A320s, four A319s and seven Boeing 737s. The Tunisian flag carrier had launched a call for tenders in late 2016 aimed at selecting two MRO suppliers for each engine type. Following the consultation, AFI KLM E&M was the sole candidate to be selected to handle all three engine-types simultaneously.

At the request of Tunisair, the company was able to deal with a one-off commission to return four CFM56-5A engines (to be used in support of the Tunisian carrier’s summer season schedule) to serviceable condition. A first engine has already been returned to service thanks to the intervention of an AFI KLM E&M technical team in Tunis. Two others are now undergoing repairs at the AFI KLM E&M shop in Paris, and the fourth is currently being transported to the facility.


CFM International and Lion Group have extended a 25-year Material Service Agreement (MSA) for CFM56-7B, CFM56-5B, and LEAP-1B engines originally signed in 2014 to include the LEAP-1A engine. This follows an order from Transportation Partners, the airline’s leasing arm, for 380 LEAP-1A engines to power Airbus A320neo/A321neo aircraft.

In addition to the LEAP-1A engines, Lion Group has also ordered 544 LEAP-1B engines to power its Boeing 737 MAX 8, MAX 9, and MAX 10 aircraft, of which 10 are currently in service with Lion Air. With a fleet of 924 LEAP engines in service or on order at a total value of $13.4 billion at list price, Lion Group is the largest LEAP engine customer in the world.


CFM International has signed an LoA with Saudi low cost carrier flynas for the purchase of 160 LEAP-1A engines to power 80 Airbus A320neo aircraft, along with a long-term services agreement on a pay by-the-hour basis.


GE Aviation has signed a 15-year TrueChoice Flight Hour agreement with Turkish Airlines to support GEnx-1B engines on 25 Boeing 787-9 (plus five options), which were ordered in March.


GE Aviation has signed a three-year TrueChoiceMaterial agreement with Wales-based aftermarket supply specialist AerFin for serviceable OEM parts, advanced repairs and technology upgrades for the CFM56, CF34 and CF6-80C2 engines.


GE Aviation has signed a TrueChoice Overhaul agreement with American Airlines for up to 20 years for GEnx-1B engines for 22 newly ordered Boeing 787-8s and 25 787-9s.


Pratt & Whitney has signed a 15-year EngineWise service agreement with JetBlue Airways to support the Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine to power 45 Airbus A320neo and A321neo aircraft.


StandardAero recently signed a new, three-year MRO agreement to provide support for 17 Honeywell 36-150RJ APUs equipping Air Georgian’s fleet of Bombardier CRJ100/200 aircraft. Air Georgian principally operates as an Air Canada Express Partner. The services will be provided at StandardAero’s Maryville, TN, facility.


StandardAero was recently awarded an exclusive, three-year agreement to provide Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PW127M engine MRO services for Vietnam Airlines’ fully owned subsidiary, Vietnam Air Service Company (VASCO). Under the contract, StandardAero will provide engine MRO services in support of VASCO’s fleet of ATR 72-500 aircraft from its P&WC PW100 Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) in Gonesse, France.
