Aeroméxico Connect is the regional airline of Mexico’s flag carrier Aeroméxico. With a fleet of 65 Embraer aircraft, it is considered the most important regional airline in Mexico and one of the biggest Embraer aircraft operators worldwide offering more than 300 daily scheduled flights to 42 destinations in Mexico, ten in the United States and four in Central America. Only recently, Aeroméxico Connect has expanded its existing exclusive maintenance contract with MTU Maintenance until 2022. The company is now responsible for all 65 CF34-10E engines which power its fleet of Embraer 190s.
The CF34 engine is the most popular engine for regional jets with 50 to 100 seats. As an Authorized CF34 Service Provider, MTU Maintenance’s location in Berlin-Brandenburg is specialized in the maintenance of this engine type and the first independent provider worldwide to offer MRO services, including on-wing repairs for all current variants of the engine. Since the start of the program in 2001, MTU Maintenance has completed approximately 1,500 engine or module overhauls, almost half of which on-wing.
