MTU Maintenance and Malaysia Airlines Berhad signed an exclusive 10-year contract for the airline’s over 100 CFM56-7B. The contract covers maintenance, repair and overhaul for the engine fleet until phase-out and includes lease engines and LLP management. 

Malaysia Airlines is the national carrier of Malaysia and transports 40,000 guests on more than 300 flights daily to 59 destinations around the world. “We are delighted to be partnering with MTU Maintenance,” says Captain Izham Ismail, Group Chief Executive Officer of Malaysia Airlines. “We are confident that MTU will provide the flexible, reliable service needed to keep our B737-800 fleet safely flying as well as an optimized cost per flight hour that supports our bottom line.” 

“This is the largest CFM56-7B contract signed by MTU Maintenance to date,” adds Michael Schreyögg, Chief Program Officer, MTU Aero Engines. “MTU is proud to be supporting Malaysia Airlines with our exceptional and intelligent solutions as their CFM56-7B engines enter the mature stage of their lifecycle. We look forward to proactively managing Malaysia Airlines’ fleet, maximizing engine usage and reducing cost for our partner.”  

The service offering incorporates MTU Maintenance’s PERFORMPlus solution for newer engines, ensuring longer on-wing times through optimized fleet management, engine trend monitoring, on-site services and lease support. Further, it also draws on numerous elements of the company’s SAVEPlus solution for more mature engines, using smart strategies to minimize cost at end of life. MTU Maintenance Zhuhai will be carrying out these services on behalf of Malaysia Airlines. 

MTU Maintenance is the global leader in customized solutions for aero engines. The company is the number one independent service provider for the CFM56-family and is seeing strong and increasing demand for its services. In 2018 alone, over one third of all contract wins were for CFM56 engines. The network operates a tri-location policy for the CFM56 engine family – serving engines in Hannover, Vancouver and Zhuhai.
