MTU Maintenance Dallas  will relocate from Grapevine, Texas to a larger facility at nearby Fort Worth Alliance Airport. This will create significantly more capacity. The new climate-controlled shop will have 430,000 square feet of space - an increase of 400 percent compared to the previous location. The new facility will not only accommodate increasing space requirements and a growing workforce, it will also enable engine testing on-site for the first time.

Michael Schreyögg, Chief Program Officer at MTU Aero Engines, commented: “It is great to see that the expansion of our ON-SITEPlus network continues to make progress. This allows us to better serve our customers, further strengthening existing relationships and building new ones. With our customized and flexible on-site and near-wing services, we are responding to the increased market trend towards smaller, lower-cost workscopes and quick-turns.”

Nezam Moghadassian, General Manager at MTU Maintenance Dallas, said: “The expanded operations, with the addition of the engine testing capability, will allow MTU Maintenance Dallas to offer our customers comprehensive, one-stop maintenance solutions at one of the largest on-site service and level one maintenance facilities in North America.”

The new facility offers MTU Maintenance Dallas the best conditions to continue working to the highest quality standards. The move is scheduled for Q2 2023. There will be no operational impact during the relocation period. The test cell facility, which can support engines with up to 100,000 pounds of thrust, is planned to be operational by Q4 2023. These new capabilities, together with the higher capacities, provide flexibility to add additional engine types to the maintenance portfolio in the near future.

MTU Maintenance Dallas, currently located in Grapevine, Texas, is part of MTU’s MRO network and is MTU Maintenance's main hub for on-site services in North America. The shop holds approvals from EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency), the FAA (Federal Aviation Authority) and multiple other certifications from regulatory agencies across the globe. Today MTU Maintenance Dallas’ existing maintenance portfolio includes CFM56-3/-5B/-7B, CF34-3/-8/-10, CF6-80C2/E1, GE90, PW2000, and V2500 engines.
