Aircraft engine servicing partnership in UAE includes Trent 772B that powers the A330 MRTT.

Two UAE-based companies — GAL and Mubadala subsidiary Sanad — announced an aircraft engine servicing partnership on 15 November during the Dubai Airshow 2021.

The deal includes Rolls-Royce Trent 772B engine maintenance services to support a performance-based logistics contract that EDGE company GAL currently holds with the UAE Air Force (UAEAF).

Trent 700 engines power Airbus A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport aircraft operated by the UAEAF, which on 14 November announced an order for two more.

‘Through shared knowledge and a rich tradition in aviation excellence, GAL and Sanad will provide MRO support to service the engines, reducing current turnaround time and shop visit costs by eliminating the need to ship engines outside the UAE,’ EDGE and Sanad noted in a joint statement.

Sanad operates the only independent Trent 700 MRO facility in the world. It works with major OEMs such as Rolls-Royce, GE Aviation and International Aero Engines.
