Finnair signs 12-Year V-Services Fleet Hour Agreement with IAE
Finnair has signed an exclusive, 12-year V-Services Fleet Hour Agreement to manage 10 V2500 engines. The agreement will cover installed engines on five Airbus A321ceo aircraft. The V2500 engine is offered through International Aero Engines, a multinational aero engine consortium whose shareholders comprise Pratt & Whitney, Pratt & Whitney Aero Engines International GmbH, Japanese Aero Engines Corporation and MTU Aero Engines. Engines maintained under an FHA qualify for Pure-V status, which recognizes engines that are maintained to the highest OEM build standards. Pure-V engines include only OEM-approved parts and repair, which provides the highest level of engine residual value over the long term. Pure-V engines provide operators with predictable maintenance costs, fewer unscheduled engine removals and longer time on-wing between shop visits.
