Pratt & Whitney (Stand L39) and joint-venture partner China Eastern Airlines (CEA) have signed an agreement to incorporate V2500 engine overhaul capability at their facility in Shanghai. The Pratt & Whitney Shanghai Engine Center will begin V2500 overhauls in 2017.
The engine center opened in 2009 to perform maintenance on General Electric/Snecma CFM56 engines. It serves airline customers in China and the Asia Pacific region.
“Pratt & Whitney has helped keep our fleet running through its investment in cutting-edge technology and advanced repair capability in engine maintenance, repair and overhaul,” said Feng Liang, China Eastern Airlines vice president. “We are pleased to expand our current partnership to include V2500 engine services.”
