Lufthansa Technik AG and GE Aviation have entered into a long-term cooperation agreement related to material supply, which also extends to the supply of OEM spare parts, and parts repairs of CF6-80C2 and CF34 engines operated by Lufthansa Technik's customers.
As part of this agreement, Lufthansa Technik and GE will jointly develop and utilize each other's component repairs as well as other support elements for their respective maintenance, repair and overhaul services.
