IAE International Aero Engines AG said it has awarded Avianca the Pure-V designation for its V2500 engines.
Avianca (as a result of its merger with Taca El Salvador) currently has 33 V2500-powered A320ceo family aircraft in service.
A Pure-V designated engine contains IAE-approved parts and repairs throughout the entire engine. The program was created to provide a designation IAE customers´ engines that have been maintained to OEM standards. According to IAE´s records, approximately 60 percent of the V2500 fleet qualifies as Pure-V.
IAE´s Pure-V engine program is designed to help operators and lessors enhance residual values for their V2500 engines. The program rewards operators who maintain OEM build standard engines with extended warranties on parts. IAE can also provide a customized conversion kit for engines that do not currently meet the Pure-V standard.
Avianca is the commercial brand that represents the Latin American airlines integrated in Avianca Holdings S.A. Its website is at http://www.pure-v-engine.com.
