Iberia Maintenance’s Aircraft Engine workshop is one of only four in Europe authorised to repair this engine model

Iberia Maintenance has completed the overhaul and bench testing of its first V2500 aircraft engine in its Engine Workshop facilities after it was licensed last year to repair them.

The turbo-fan engine belongs to Vueling, the low-cost Barcelona-based carrier which, like Iberia and British Airways, part of the International Airlines Group (IAG). Another seven V2500 engines are currently undergoing inspection and repair in Iberia Maintenance facilities.

The V2500 powers Airbus aircraft in the A-320 family. Some 5,700 V2500s are now in service and another 1,800 will be operating by the end of 2017. Iberia’s Maintenance Engine Workshop is one of the four facilities in Europe authorised to perform complete overhauls of this engine.

Iberia’s technical director José Luis Quirós commented, “The delivery of the first V2500 to be overhauled in our facilities is the culmination of a project which will lend sustainability to our business into the future with a new production line over the next decade, while consolidating our position as one of Europe’s most important engine repair facilities.”

The V2500 is the latest engine to be worked on by Iberia Maintenance, which also repairs the RB211-535E4, RB211-535C37, CFM56-5A1/-5B/-5C4/-7x, CF34-3A1/-3B1, JT8D-217, RR Pegasus MK 150-42 and Pegasus 408 engines. The 540 employees of the engine unit service about 200 engines per year

Iberia Maintenance also inspects and repairs airframes and parts, both for the Iberia Group and for about 100 outside clients from all over the world.
