MTU Chinese JV Reaches Engine Milestone
MTU Maintenance Zhuhai, a joint venture between MTU Aero Engines and China Southern Air, has completed its 2,000 engine shop visit.
The engine was a China Southern Airlines-operated V2500-A5. To celebrate the milestone, the firm held a ceremony for partners and employees at its facility in the Chinese city last week.
The JV was established 15 years ago in China specializing in CFM56 and V2500 engines for narrowbody aircraft. Earlier this year, MTU Maintenance Zhuhai reached another milestone by completing its 1,000th CFM56 shop visit.
