SriLankan Airlines and Lufthansa Technik have signed a 5-year component supply contract for the carrier's Airbus A320 fleet. Spare parts will be supplied to the airline's home base at Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo, where also the main base stock of certain Aircraft-On-Ground (AOG) relevant components is being kept.
Repair and pooling of the components will be done at Lufthansa Technik's base in Hamburg. However, the customer support is located in Bangalore, India, and therefore in the same time zone. This ensures the fastest response time for all customer needs besides Lufthansa Technik's general 24/7 AOG Desk.
Robin Johansson, Director Sales South East Asia and Australia at Lufthansa Technik, commented: "I am delighted that we have been able to expand our engagement in the region of the Indian subcontinent.
And I am very proud that our long-lasting partnership with SriLankan Airlines will continue in the future. As a strong partner we will offer an optimal component support to assist SriLankan on its successful growth path."
Within the framework of the TCS® contract, Lufthansa Technik's experts will take care of all aspects relating to daily component supplies for SriLankan. Currently, Lufthansa Technik is already supporting the airline with a Total Component Maintenance TCM contract for several dozen part numbers.
