MTU enters into branded agreement with GE Engines
The CF34 engine range powers the Embraer Lineage 1000 and Bombardier Challenger 600 and 800 series, as well as regional jets. The family will enjoy the support of MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg in Germany.

MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg, a subsidiary of Germany's MTU Aero Engines, has signed an agreement for an eight-year GE branded service agreement (GBSA) extension for CF34 engines with GE Aviation. The GBSA enables MTU to continue serving as an authorised service provider through 2030 for CF34-3, CF34-8C, CF34-8E and CF34-10E engines and perform OEM maintenance, overhaul workscoping and component repairs as well as provide comprehensive materials support.

The CF34 engine family powers the Embraer Lineage 1000 and Bombardier Challenger 600 and 800 series, as well as regional jets.

“We are delighted to continue our established partnership with GE Aviation with this CF34 licensing agreement,” says André Sinanian, MD and senior VP MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg. “We recently celebrated the redelivery of our 500th CF34-10E and have carried out 1,400 shop visits and several hundred onsite events for the entire engine family since 2003. Regional engines such as the CF34 will play an important role in the industry recovery post COVID-19, and we look forward to supporting operators with the excellent technical expertise and cost-effective MRO solutions they have come to expect from MTU.”

GM of GE Aviation's Regional and Business Aviation Engines and Services Cristina Seda-Hoelle adds: “Since 2002, MTU has been a close partner with GE in the CF34 MRO network. With more than 4,000 CF34 engines in service, GE is very pleased to extend this critical partnership for the long-term strength of the programme.”
