MTU Maintenance has signed a five-year LEAP-1A maintenance, repair and overhaul contract with SriLankan Airlines, building on the two companies’ existing relationship that has also covered V2500 engines and leasing support. The work will be carried out at MTU Maintenance Zhuhai, the 50/50 joint venture with China Southern Airlines, which, among other models, specializes in MRO services for LEAP engines and has completed almost 100 shop visits on this engine type since 2018.

Richard Nuttall, CEO of SriLankan Airlines, commented: “We are delighted to be expanding our long-standing and successful partnership. We trust in MTU Maintenance’s technical expertise and look forward to their fast, reliable and cost-efficient support for our growing fleet.” The national carrier currently operates a fleet of 22 Airbus A330 and A320/A321 aircraft and carries out flights across South Asia, Europe, the Far East and the Middle East.

Michael Schreyögg, Chief Program Officer, MTU Aero Engines, said: “This contract is a testament to our long-term cooperation with SriLankan Airlines as they expand their fleet to include new generation engines. We were the first MRO to add independent LEAP capabilities and will support SriLankan Airlines with safe, reliable and expert MRO in the years to come.”

MTU Maintenance is the world’s largest independent provider of customized MRO solutions for aero engines. It carries out over 1,200 shop visits each year for a portfolio of over 30 engine types. Alongside engine MRO, the company provides a wide range of services, including on-site support, engine leasing and asset management as well as engine trend monitoring and fleet management through its proprietary CORTEX software.
