CTS Engines Wins Overhaul Work With Korean Carrier

Mature engine specialist will cover a fleet of GE-made engines for Asiana.

U.S.-based mature engine maintenance specialist CTS Engines has landed a new contract to overhaul Asiana Airlines-operated CF6-80C2 engines powering some of its widebody aircraft.

Running for five years, Fort Lauderdale-based CTS said it won contract following a “comprehensive bidding process” involving a number of other engine overhaul companies.

The GE engine option is currently certified on eleven widebody aircraft models, including the Boeing 747-400 – with four in operation in the Asiana Airlines fleet.

“We are incredibly excited to win this contract,” said Brian Neff, CTS’s CEO. “Asiana Airlines is a blue-chip combination carrier with globally recognized quality standards. That we were successful in such a competitive process is a testament to CTS’s long-term quality and value proposition.”

CTS, which operates from two Florida facilities in Fort Lauderdale and Jupiter, holds approvals for mature engine types including the GE’s CF6-50, CF6-80A, CF6-80C, and Pratt & Whitney’s PW2000, an option for the Boeing 757.
