Southwest Adds Engines To MRO Contract

Southwest Airlines has expanded its engine maintenance agreement with GE Aviation.

The carrier’s OnPoint programme now covers almost 300 extra CFM56-7B engines that Southwest uses to power its 737-800 and -700 aircraft.

OnPoint is a tailored contract that can range from specific actions to full-service support, and Southwest’s original OnPoint deal, signed in 2005, was reported to be a combination of cost-per-flight-hour and time-and-materials billing.
