This is to service and overhaul General Electric LM2500 Gas Turbines that power much of the US Navy's fleet.

The contracts will see the Auckland based Gas Turbines team carry out maintenance and overhaul work for the next few years.

Air New Zealand Chief Operations Officer Bruce Parton says the contracts are an important win for the airline.

"This is a significant boost for our Gas Turbines business. Air New Zealand participated in a competitive bidding process to secure this work and we would like to acknowledge the support of the New Zealand Government and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise throughout the process."

Air New Zealand Gas Turbines is a business unit of Air New Zealand, providing gas turbine overhaul and repair services to clients across a range of industries. The business began sourcing work in the industrial and marine sector more than 30 years ago and has since supported several of the world's navies, offshore oil and gas platform operators and power generation companies.
