Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey (LTAA) has celebrated servicing the 3000th turboprop engine of the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW100 series to pass through its doors.
Together with the manufacturer, the customer Binter Canarias and the airframer ATR, the anniversary engine, a PW127M destined for an ATR 72-500 of the Spanish airline, was honoured with a commemorative event in the Alzey facility.
The first engine of the PW100 series of the Canadian manufacturer was serviced by LTAA already in 1988. After P&WC, LTAA is the world’s second largest supplier of repair and overhaul services for the PW100.
"The PW100 engine type developed itself as a backbone within Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey’s portfolio and our respective experience, gained within more than two decades, attracts various customers from all continents," said Mark Johnson, chief executive officer of Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey. Martin Hach, chief operating officer added, that "likewise we appreciate the long term relationship with ATR, which represents a major share of PW100 engines workload and fully benefit from our continuous effort to deliver the most competitive support packages for this engine type."
