Posted 9 October 2017 · Add Comment

TAAG Angola Airlines has signed a five-year, TrueChoice Overhaul agreement with GE Aviation for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of its CFM56-7B engines that power its five Boeing 737-700 aircraft.

"For TAAG Angola Airlines to achieve its goal of becoming the most prominent and respected airline in Africa, it is essential to select partners that create respect and confidence from the industry to service the TAAG product," said Robert Bryant, Deputy COO Maintenance & Engineering, TAAG Angloa Airlines. "All engines on the TAAG fleet of Boeing 777 and 737 aircraft are TRUEngine* qualified in the GE and CFM programs. Therefore, it is a logical progression to ensure that they retain that status with this TrueChoice Overhaul agreement. The very competitive proposal received from GE for the CFM56 engines, adding to the existing GE90 agreement for engine shop visits, combines the accepted excellence of GE with a cost-effective total package for the next five years of TAAG development." 

"This agreement demonstrates TAAG Angola Airlines continued confidence in GE Aviation's service offerings," said Jean Lydon-Rodgers, president and chief executive officer of GE Aviation's Services organization. "We thank TAAG for its trust in GE and our OEM quality material and workscope."
