On Wednesday (October 19, 2022), Pratt & Whitney announced that they have welcomed Iberia Maintenance, the maintenance and engineering division of Iberia Airlines, to the global GTF MRO network. Iberia’s Madrid-based facility will service PW1100G-JM engines for Airbus A320neo Family aircraft with full disassembly, assembly and test capability. The announcement was marked by an in-person signing ceremony with Pratt & Whitney’s Executive Director – GTF Engine Aftermarket, Marc Meredith, and Iberia’s Chief Technical Officer, Andy Best, during Aviation Week’s MRO Europe conference.

In Wednesday’s announcment, Pratt & Whitney’s Executive Director of GTF Engine Aftermarket, Marc Meredith, said,

“With increasing engine orders, we continue to grow our MRO presence with capable, quality maintenance providers worldwide to ensure proximity and seamless service to our customers. Already a proven MRO provider for the V2500 engine, Iberia Maintenance’s skill and experience will be a strong asset to the GTF MRO network.”

Also commenting on their new GTF MRO certification, Iberia’s Chief Technical Officer, Andy Best, added,

“We are proud to receive Pratt & Whitney’s confidence and to take this strategic step in the development of our engine business, which will allow us to consolidate our position as a full-service provider in single aisle fleets while ensuring the continuity of our workshop at the forefront of the industry's technology. I would also like to thank both the Iberia and Pratt & Whitney teams for all the hard work and collaboration in achieving this milestone.”
