Contract types

Whether or not a specific type of contract is the most appropriate one for a customer depends on a number of factors that need to be considered on an individual basis. One thing is for sure: there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution. Each type of contract has its advantages and disadvantages and has to take the customer’s special needs and requirements into account. Important aspects that have an impact on the appropriate contract include, but are not limited to, the age of the engines, the size of the fleet, ownership, and the customer’s maintenance capabilities - if it has MRO expertise of its own. The complex interactions of these factors make it necessary for the MRO shop to put together a tailor-made contract that is drawn up in close cooperation with the customer.

Today, contracts offered by MTU Maintenance range from conventional time & material agreements to popular fly-by-hour arrangements and all the way to full service packages for engines, or even for aircraft. In the latter case, MTU Maintenance will typically cooperate with a partner that specializes in airframe maintenance. 

MTU Maintenance has all of the standard types of contract in its portfolio. In addition to conventional engine maintenance contracts, it offers customized service solutions that are designed around the customers’ needs. Existing contractual arrangements can be updated, for example in the event of a change in the composition of the fleets or when needed over the course of the engine life cycle.
