8:18 am on 4 April 2013

Air New Zealand and Pratt and Whitney will invest $20 million to expand a facility that overhauls jet engines at Christchurch airport.

The Christchurch Engine Centre will get new workshops and a logistics centre at its V2500 engine shop.

The facility overhauls engines fitted to Air New Zealand's A320 fleet and other new generation aircraft.

The expansion is expected to be completed by the end of next year.
