GE has awarded Alitalia its TRUEngine designation for 31 CF34-8E engines powering its fleet of Embraer 175s and 10 CF34-10E engines powering its fleet of Embraer 190s.
Previously, Alitalia received the TRUEngine designation for its CFM56-5B engines and CF6-80E engines.
To qualify for TRUEngine status, the engine configuration, overhaul practices, spare parts and repairs used to service an engine must comply with GE-issued engine manuals and other maintenance recommendations. The qualification is obtained through the customer's declaration of compliance and GE's verification of customer submitted maintenance records since birth.
