Iberia Maintenance has obtained the license from Pratt & Whitney, one of the largest aeronautical engine manufacturers in the world, to provide engineering and maintenance services to the GTF PW1100 G-JM, which powers the Airbus A320neo family of aircraft. Iberia Maintenance has been working on this project for more than two years. The company has invested in the latest technologies available in the market for grinding, balancing and acquisition of test data for the maintenance of this type of engine. The company has also adapted both its 52,500m2 engine workshop, specialized in V2500, CFM56 and RB211, as well as its test bench, both located in Madrid, to GTF engines. This new contract demonstrates Iberia Maintenance's high level of experience, its skills and its ability to adapt to new market demands. Obtaining certification to be able to carry out maintenance on GTF engines is a strategic step to expand the company's scope of activity and provide service to the new generation of engines that will power the aircraft fleet in the coming decades. “We are very proud that Pratt & Whitney has trusted in Iberia Maintenance and has designated us as a certified center for the maintenance of GTF engines. This is a strategic step in the development of our engine business, which will allow us to consolidate our position as service providers in short-haul fleets, while ensuring the continuity of our workshop at the forefront of technology in the sector," he said. Andy Best, Director of Iberia Maintenance. The company will receive its first GTF engine in 2023.
