GE Aviation and Sanad Aerotech announced at the Dubai Airshow an agreement for the Abu Dhabi-based MRO to provide maintenance services for GE’s GEnx-1B engines as well as continued time (quick turn) overhauls on CFM International’s Leap engines, both of which power next-generation narrow- and widebody airliners.

Under the agreement, effective in 2020, Sanad will also expand its existing maintenance and repair services to include full overhaul on a total of 315 GEnx engines until 2035, and quick-turn on 237 Leap engines until 2030. The contract is valued at some $136 million.

“This significant new agreement is a testament to the trust that Sanad Aerotech [Pavilion 3; Stand 910] has earned as a preferred global provider for engine MRO solutions to the world’s largest engine manufacturers,” said Sanad CEO Mansoor Janahi, adding that the contract “supports the emirate’s vision to build a sustainable knowledge and innovation economy.”
