MTU Maintenance wins contract to maintain Southwest’s CFM56-3 engines

MTU Maintenance Canada and Southwest Airlines have signed an exclusive long term agreement for the maintenance of Southwest’s CFM56-3 engines. With its exclusive Boeing 737 fleet, Southwest Airlines is one of the largest CFM56 operators in the world and an important customer for MTU Maintenance. Under the agreement, MTU Maintenance will provide Southwest Airlines with a Total Engine Care (TEC) program in order to generate additional value for the airline’s CFM56-3 engines. “MTU Maintenance will collaborate with Southwest on the management of technical, material and commercial challenges related to the CFM56-3 engines for our Boeing 737 Classic fleet,” said Bill Tiffany, Senior Director Supply Chain Management at Southwest. “Together, we have designed and executed a closed loop material solution and anticipate significant cost savings over the life of the agreement compared to a traditional maintenance program.”
