Philippines’ airline Cebu Pacific has signed an agreement with ITP for the full support of the PW127M engines which power the airline’s ATR72-500 and 72-600 fleets. In total, this agreement will cover 24 aircraft with an estimated duration of 12 years.
ITP has been providing maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services to Cebu Pacific throughout the last seven years and this agreement signals the renewal of the partnership between both companies. ITP will be providing customer support from its representative office in Singapore, while the PW100 engines will be repaired at the company’s facilities in Ajalvir, Spain.
“CEB has worked with ITP over the last few years and this renewed agreement further strengthens our relationship,” said Lance Gokongwei, president and CEO of Cebu Pacific.
Ignacio Mataix, ITP CEO said: “This agreement shows the commitment of both companies to continue with the excellent working relationship developed over the last years supporting one of the largest and most demanding fleets in Asia Pacific.”
Asia Pacific is known to have the largest number of Pratt & Whitney Canada’s PW100 engine operators, for which ITP is a Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF), covering all the large family models.
