Icelandair has signed a TrueChoice Transitions contract with GE Aviation comprised of a custom ordered CF6-80C2 spare engine.
The agreement, announced by the U.S. engine maker on Tuesday (Mar. 7), follows on from an agreement signed by the two parties last year for the maintenance of CF6-80C2 engines that power the airline’s four Boeing 767 aircraft.
“We were greatly impressed by the speed and flexibility that GE Aviation demonstrated with this TrueChoice Transition agreement,” said Unnar Sumarlidason, engineering manager, Icelandair.
“GE was willing to build us a spare engine to order that will help us as we grow our fleet, and we are pleased with the level of support that GE has shown.”
