PARIS AIR SHOW, Tuesday, June 21, 2012
Pratt & Whitney Canada Customer Service Centre Europe GmbH (P&WC CSC Europe), a joint venture of Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) and MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg GmbH, significantly expanded a Fleet Management Program (FMP®) contract with INAER. Pratt & Whitney Canada is a United Technologies Corp. company (NYSE:UTX).
INAER has further broadened their FMP® agreement with CSC Europe through the inclusion of over 100 engines from its worldwide fleet, including PT6T Twin-Pac® engines. The plan also covers its PT6C-67C and PW200 engines from INAER's Italy operations. Building on its existing engine maintenance coverage for their PT6C-67C fleet in Spain that was expanded in 2010, this new enhanced long term plan provides a combination of maintenance support solutions including Fleet Enhancement Program options.
"We are elated to be providing this unique support solution that encompasses INAER's global engine fleet," said Clemens Linden, General Manager of P&WC's CSC Europe. "This demonstrates our flexible approach to effect integrated worldwide solutions for our customers operating in different regions and with different engine types."
