At MRO Americas, Safran spotlights its maintenance, repair and overhaul capabilities
The 2023 MRO Americas exhibition and conference took place in Atlanta, Georgia, from April 18 to 20 and brought together airlines, OEMs, MRO service providers, leasing companies, aviation authorities, and regulators. It provided the opportunity for Safran to engage customers and highlight its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) solutions for operators in civil and military markets.
Safran companies represented at this year’s MRO Americas included Safran Aerosystems, Safran Cabin, Safran Electrical & Power, Safran Electronics & Defense, Safran Landing Systems, Safran Nacelles, and Safran Seats. Also on the exhibit floor was CFM International, a joint venture between Safran Aircraft Engines and GE.
A major highlight of MRO Americas 2023 was the signing of an agreement between Safran Nacelles and Lufthansa Technik for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of nacelles for LEAP-1A engines on the Airbus A320neo. More than 2,500 nacelles produced by Safran Nacelles currently are in service on A320neo aircraft, with Lufthansa Technik now becoming a member of Safran Nacelles’ licensed MRO network.
Also at MRO Americas 2023, Safran participated in the A-WING Job Fair to underscore its commitment for the advancement of women in aviation and aerospace. A-WING (Aviation Women Inspiring Next Generation) is a non-profit organization committed to growing the number of women in these industries.
On the opening day of MRO Americas, Safran USA hosted an Aftermarket Working Group breakfast meeting, which brought together over 60 attendees. Guest speaker Lee Ann Shay, the Executive Editor of Business Aviation & MRO at Aviation Week, provided a short overview of the global MRO market and major trends before engaging in a Q&A with attendees.
