SWISS Technical Division – Aircraft Engines

The team spirit in our international team is a motivating force – and the key to our success.

An aircraft engine lasts for several years if properly serviced and maintained.

With 13,640 horsepower (Airbus A321), it is 100 times more powerful than a car engine.

After about 25,000 flight hours (or eight years on average), the SWISS Technical Division overhauls the engines for the first time, each one weighing more than 2.5 tonnes.
