Jet Airways Extends OnPoint Solution agreement with GE for GE90 -115B engines
Jet Airways, India’s premier international airline, extended its OnPoint solution agreement with GE Aviation for an additional five years on the fleet of GE90 engines that power the airline’s Boeing 777- 300ER. The extension, valued at more than $200m, ensures GE will provide the maintenance, repair and overhaul of 22 GE90 engines through 2022. Also, Jet Airways has signed an agreement with GE for a thrust bump on its entire GE90 fleet of 22 engines. This provides Jet Airways with the flexibility to operate high payloads even when flying out on short runways under severely hot operating conditions experienced in the summer months in many parts of Asia and the Middle East.
