Under the agreement the China Southern Airlines Group will house a pool of Meggitt engine sensors and heat exchangers to dispatch to customers directly in case of an AOG incident, enabling a faster return to service for local Chinese airline customers.

CFM International’s Leap-1C engine powers Comac’s new generation single-aisle jet, the C919. The engine uses Meggitt technology and is designed to deliver up to a 15% reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Adrian Bunn, SVP General Manager, Asia Pacific for Meggitt’s Services & Support division, said: “China is such an important market for us and it will only continue to grow as the C919 fleet expands. We are delighted to be working with China Southern Airlines Group Import & Export Trading to support AOG activities in the region.

"Through this agreement we are better able to service the needs of our growing customer base, ensuring swifter turnaround times and more efficient operations. Together with the MRO services we can now offer from our newly established Lufthansa Technik partnership in Shenzhen, we look forward to building even stronger relationships with our Chinese customers and business partners over the years to come.”
