B747-8F engines to be serviced for six more years
Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA), which operates eight Boeing B747-8Fs, has extended an engine services agreement with GE Aerospace by six years. The ‘rate per flight hour’ deal covers the four GEnx-2B engines on each of NCA’s cargo Jumbos.
Toshiaki Kobori, NCA’s managing director of engineering and maintenance, said that “this agreement strengthens our partnership and will ensure that our GEnx engines are covered into the new decade.”
The offering incorporates an array of GE capabilities, as well as customisation, across an engine’s lifecycle. Each offering is underpinned by GE’s data, analytic capabilities and experience, to help reduce the maintenance burden as well as service disruption for customers.
NCA and GE have a long-standing relationship that began with the CF6 engine. Today's NCA fleet is powered by GE’s CF6 and GEnx. (ah)
