MTU Wins LATAM GE90 MRO Contract

MTU Maintenance has signed a contract with South American airline group LATAM for MRO services on some of the GE90 engines powering its 777 freighter fleet.

Along with maintenance services, the agreement also includes global on-wing and on-site coverage.

The German firm began servicing the engine type in 2011 and offers full GE90 repair capability at its Hanover facility.

Before their merger into LATAM, MTU had previously worked with LAN Airlines on the overhaul of CF6-80 and CFM56-7 engines and TAM Linhas Aéreas servicing V2500 engines.
