General Electric has won maintenance contract extensions with several airlines already supported under its aftermarket programme.

Emirates has extended an hour-based MRO agreement for 54 GE90-115B engines that power some of the airline's 118 Boeing 777-300ER twinjets. Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that Emirates also has 23 GE90-powered 777-200LR passenger and freighter aircraft and 16 777s with Rolls-Royce Trent 800 engines.

GE says the contract extension is valued in excess of $400 million over the life of the deal.

Austrian Airlines has broadened an hour-based agreement covering 10 GE90-90B engines that power its 777-200ER fleet. The deal spans MRO services and spare-parts provision, and has a value of $70 million over the contract period, says GE.

Meanwhile, Turkish Airlines has extended a support contract for CF6-80E engines that power seven Airbus A330s. That deal covers hour-based services, but also time and material-based overhauls, and will run until 2026.

Turkish has 58 A330s variously powered by CF6, Pratt & Whitney PW4000 and Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines.

Additionally, the partnership with GE involves some "leadership training", the US engine maker reveals.
