India's Jet Airways has signed an expanded engine maintenance agreement with GE Aviation for nine new Airbus A330-200 aircraft.

The 10-year contract extends GE's OnPoint solution to the CF6-80E engines on the A330s that Jet has ordered from Airbus. It is valued at $150 million.

"GE's OnPoint solution agreement is a comprehensive engine maintenance solution that maintains our engines to ensure the superior operational reliability for which Jet Airways is highly regarded," says Nikos Kardassis, chief executive of Jet.

OnPoint already covers the engines on 10 A330-200s in Jet's fleet.

Jet has firm orders for five A330-200s and options for five more, according to Flightglobal's Ascend Online database.
