Air New Zealand unit wins US Navy engine service contract
Air New Zealand announced on June 20 that its Gas Turbines unit won four contracts worth up to USD$42 million to service U.S. Navy ship engines.
The contracts will see the company service and overhaul General Electric LM2500 Gas Turbines that power much of the US Navy’s fleet over the next few years.
Air New Zealand chief operations officer Bruce Parton says the contracts are an important win for the airline.
“This is a significant boost for our Gas Turbines business. Air New Zealand participated in a competitive bidding process to secure this work and we would like to acknowledge the support of the New Zealand Government and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise throughout the process.”
