Iberia completes overhaul of first V2500 engine
Iberia Maintenance has completed the overhaul and bench testing of its first V2500 engine in its Engine Workshop facilities after it was licensed last year to repair them. The turbo-fan engine belongs to Vueling, the low-cost Barcelona-based carrier which, like Iberia and British Airways, is part of the International Airlines Group (IAG). Another seven V2500 engines are currently undergoing inspection and repair in Iberia Maintenance’ facilities. The V2500 powers the A-320 family. Some 5,700 V2500s are now in service and another 1,800 will be operating by the end of 2017. Iberia’s Maintenance Engine Workshop is one of the four facilities in Europe authorised to perform complete overhauls of this engine.
