Mesa Air Group has signed an 11-year OnPoint agreement for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of its 138 CF34-8 engine fleet.
"As we continue to expand our operations, we are delighted to partner with GE to provide our long-term engine maintenance," remarked Gary Appling, senior vice-president of maintenance and engineering at Mesa. "As the manufacturer, GE's extensive overhaul capabilities will both ensure superior reliability of our CF34 engines and allow us to continue to be the lowest cost provider of regional capacity.”
Mesa currently operates 71 aircraft with approximately 396 daily system departures to 77 cities, and recently announced an additional 30 CF34-powered E175 will be flying for United Airlines. Mesa operates as US Airways Express and United Express under contractual agreements with US Airways and United Airlines, respectively.
