Biman Bangladesh Airlines has contracted MTU to support the General Electric GE90 engines powering its Boeing 777 fleet.

The airline’s exclusive five-year agreement with the German engine specialist covers maintenance and spare-lease-engine provisioning. It follows similar MRO contracts with MTU for Biman’s CF6-50 and CFM International CFM56 engines.

Biman is replacing its ageing McDonnell Douglas DC-10 fleet with 777-300ERs. The last remaining trijet is to be retired “in the coming months”, says MTU

Two 777s are already in operation, with two further aircraft due to follow by March. The airline has tentative orders for four additional 777s, Flightglobal’s Ascend Online database shows.
