German MRO provider MTU Maintenance, a participant in MAKS 2017, has won three new customers in Russia this year. The company revealed to Russian Aviation Insider that it had signed contracts with Rossiya Airlines (part of Aeroflot Group), UVT Aero (also a carrier), and MRO specialist Tulpar Technik. MTU also continues cooperation under existing contracts with Russian carriers NordStar Airlines and AirBridgeCargo.

Although MTU Maintenance’s services differ from one client to another, the scope of operations includes engine overhauls and maintenance at the customer’s base, as well as leasing services, said a spokesman for the company. He added that MTU had leased two General Electric CF6-80 engines to Rossiya Airlines for its Boeing 747-400s.

MTU says it is very much interested in the Russian and CIS MRO market, especially now that the regional air travel sector is recovering rapidly. The most demanded powerplant-related maintenance services in the region are for the CF6-80, CF34, CFM International CFM56, and IAE V2500 engines. Demand is particularly picking up for engine leasing provided by MTU Maintenance Lease Services, a joint venture between MTU Maintenance and Sumitomo Corporation of Japan.
