It’s TRUE: Royal Jordanian Is Region’s First with Engine Designation
Whether we do so or not, we all know it’s a good idea to service our cars regularly, and to do so at the dealer or dealer-authorized service center. A certified service record means a higher resale or trade-in value for our vehicles. So, imagine, then, how much more this is the case with commercial aircraft engines!
In fact, having original equipment manufacturer configurations regarding engine repairs and parts can give engines up to a 50% higher residual value compared to engines that include non-OEM parts or repairs.
That’s why GE has set up its TRUEngine program, including the TRUEngine Designation for aircraft engines. With this designation, engine owners, potential buyers, lessors, and appraisers know that an engine’s content and maintenance history have been verified by GE, enabling them to more easily evaluate engine configuration, asset value and re-marketability.
Here in the region, GE has just awarded Royal Jordanian Airlines its TRUEngine designation for 12 CF34-10E and six CF34-8E engines that are powering the airline’s fleet of five EMBRAER 195s and three EMBRAER 175s. This makes the airline the first in the Middle East and Africa to receive the TRUEngine designation for the CF34 engines.
The TRUEngine program covers not only CF34 engines, but also CF6, GEnx and CF34 engines. For more details about the TRUengine program, click here.
