Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey named GE Authorized Service Center
GE Aviation named Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey GmbH as an authorized service center for GE's CF34 series engines powering the Bombardier Challenger series and Embraer Lineage.
With this agreement, Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey ("LTAA") can perform line maintenance inspections, routine installed engine maintenance, including removal and replacement of engines and engine components as well as repair and overhaul services. This authorization also allows LTAA to provide OnPointSM solution and GE's new engine warranty support.
"GE Aviation and LTAA have deep experience maintaining engines across the aircraft spectrum," said Brad Mottier, vice president and general manager of GE Aviation's Business & General Aviation organization. "This Authorized Service Center agreement will enable local CF34 operators to have world-class support nearby."
GE Aviation is expanding its service network for business and general aviation engines with more than 50 Authorized Service Centers for M601, H80 and CF34 engines. This network enables customers to have access to OEM-quality service and support around the world.
Since its service entry in 1983 on the Challenger 601 Corporate Jet, the CF34 has earned an industry-leading reputation as one of the cleanest, quietest and most fuel efficient engines in its class. These rugged, airliner-class powerplants set a new standard in corporate aviation for reliability and low maintenance costs.
Across the CF34 family, GE has delivered more than 6,000 engines and continuously invests in product enhancements. Today, CF34 engines are in service with more than 1,000 business jet operators and more than 200 regional jet operators in more than 70 countries.
