MTU Maintenance and new customer Air Serbia have signed an exclusive V2500 engine maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) contract. The six-year agreement covers MRO, engine trend monitoring and spare engine services for Air Serbia’s v-powered A319 and A320 aircraft fleet. 

“We are delighted to have signed a contract with the world-renowned engine experts MTU Maintenance,” says Željko Pejovic, Director Air Serbia Technical. “We trust them to take excellent technical care of our engines and are convinced they will provide us with reliable, highly-individualized and cost-efficient services.” The Serbian flag carrier was founded in 1927, and in 2020, has already flown to a total of 63 destinations across eastern and western Europe, the Middle East and North America. The airline is headquartered in Belgrade and operates a total of 21 aircraft including A330 for transatlantic flights. 

“We are specialized in customized solutions for aero engines and proud to have been selected by Air Serbia for offering the best all-round care package for their engines,” says Michael Schreyögg, Chief Program Officer, MTU Aero Engines. “We have exceptional understanding of the V2500 fleet and are concentrating on providing all our customers with the flexible and highly customized engine MRO services they need now more than ever. As such, we are committed to ensuring Air Serbia’s needs are cost-effectively met during this ever-changing environment.”
