Cost-Effective Engine MRO

Engine maintenance is the largest segment of total MRO spend at 35%. It is the biggest cost driver for operators with forecasts predicting that engine MRO requirements are only going to increase over the next decade.

Airlines are faced with an increasingly difficult challenge to develop a strategy that leads to effective maintenance planning and cost reduction.  This forum will identify and advise on the criteria to be evaluated and understood when selecting your service provider and planning maintenance schedules and budgets for engine MRO.

  • Focus on how to reduce engine removals, optimize workscopes and reduce shop visit costs.
