Pratt & Whitney Expanding GTF MRO Capacity

Sept. 27, 2023
The global network providing maintenance, repair, and overhaul service to operators of GTF commercial aircraft engines is starting a 67% expansion in Singapore.

Pratt & Whitney plans to expand the capacity of Eagle Services Asia, the turbine-engine MRO center it operations in Singapore. The 48,000-sq.ft. expansion will accommodate a two-thirds increase in service capacity at that site, according to P&W.

The GTF engine is Pratt’s geared-turbofan engine, approximately 1,600 of which have been installed on commercial aircraft for over 60 operators worldwide. Pratt & Whitney also holds orders form nearly 10,000 future GTF engines from over 90 customers.

"Pratt & Whitney is investing globally to support the GTF fleet. As part of the expansion, we will increase staffing and provide extensive staff training so that we are well equipped to meet the increased demand," stated Shangari Meleschi, vice president, aftermarket operations – Asia Pacific and Turkiye. "We are dedicated to maintaining our customers' trust as we work through the impacts of the GTF fleet management plan."

Eagle Services Asia is part of the GTF MRO global network of engine centers operated by Pratt & Whitney, MTU Aero Engines, Japanese Aero Engines Corp., Lufthansa Technik, and Delta TechOps, that provides commercial-aircraft engine operators with various aftermarket services and improve fleet availability.

With 13 GTF MRO engine centers operating on three continents, the joint-venture partners have more than doubled the network’s size since 2019, and six more are planned by 2025.
