Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey to Maintain PW127 and CF34-8 Engines for Air Nostrum

Air Nostrum and Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey (LTAA) have signed an agreement for maintenance, repair and overhaul services of numerous Pratt & Whitney Canada PW127 turboprop engines and General Electric CF34-8C5 turbofan engines. As per the terms of the agreement, LTAA will also provide on-site services at Air Nostrum's home base in Valencia, Spain.

"Signing this contract underlines our year-long confidence in LTAA's tailored solutions and MRO experience.
